Carpet Beetles are one of the major pests of textiles.
These insects have a wandering habit that makes them difficult to control. Any treatment must be carried out as part of a programme to remove their habitat. The first step is for you to find and remove the source of the infestation. This may be an old bird's nest, animal remains, wool based insulation or lagging or the debris that accumulates between floorboards. Regular checking and cleaning are also important. Infestations can be treated by yourself with a residual insecticide and it is important to carefully follow manufacturer’s instructions to avoid causing damage. Thorough treatment is essential to ensure that all larvae are destroyed.
