Updated: Nov 11, 2022

How to tell if you have Carpet Beetles?

Ask yourself these questions:

1. Do your carpets and rugs shows signs of holes or damage?

2. Are your leather sofas and chairs being nibbled?

3. Is there damage to your books and paperwork?

4. Have you noticed any shedding / bristly skins which are causing itching?

5. Have you see faecal matter, black or brown in colour and very dry?

Sounds like you’ve got a carpet beetle problem!

Carpet beetles can cause a huge amount of damage and they’re not easy to control or get rid of.

Often, people mis-interpret signs of carpet beetle as moth activity. And it’s often difficult to locate the source of the problem because they are so small and they feast on lots of regular household items. We report regularly on preventative pest control measures and there’s no change here – it’s important to keep your home carpet beetle and pest-free.
