Recognizing the black carpet beetle
Before contacting our control experts, learn to recognize them. As with many pests, it’s the larvae that are most damaging to the insides of homes. Their food sources are mostly animal-based materials, like leather, felt, fur, silk, feathers and wool. They can be identified by their cylindrical bodies with alternating light and dark brown stripes and the presence of longer hairs on their rear ends. Adult carpet beetles take on the appearance of small beetles 3 to 5 mm in length. The colour of their hard shells shifts between dark brown and black. Black carpet beetles usually settle in air ducts, empty spaces in structures, in sofas and carpets, behind baseboards, etc. Maybe our black carpet beetle control experts could help you!
