Carpet beetles are 4mm long, oval-shaped bugs with a striped shell of black, yellow, and white color —however, they vary in color based on their species and maturity.
Carpet beetles not only damage the carpet by chewing its fabric but also the furniture above it, such as beds, couches, tables, etc.
Carpet beetles can visit your home from anywhere, including doors, windows, cracks in siding, or through openings near utility lines in search of warmth.
The Adult Carpet Beetles can be found around your garden between May and July, and you can notice them feeding on the pollen and nectar of flowers.
Vacuuming: Make sure that the vacuum cleaner reaches deep into fibers so that it can eliminate the most obvious beetles and their offspring.
Steam Cleaning: As vacuuming, the steam carpet cleaners will also suck up beetles and their eggs while giving a deep clean to your carpet.
Vinegar: The acidic properties of vinegar and its effect as a cleaning agent can do miracles in your beetle removal process.
Boric Acid: You can find this powder in your nearby market and use it on your carpet for the effective elimination of carpet beetles. But before making it into use, ensure that its acidic property does not spoil the fabric of your carpet.
Insecticide: You can buy any insecticide containing ingredients such as bifenthrin, deltamethrin, or cyfluthrin.
You can vacuum the carpet regularly to remove all the filths and your pet’s hair. Other than this, you can keep the doors and windows of your home closed if you notice a hefty amount of bugs and beetles scrolling in your garden.
