The Carpet Beetle larvae often feed on lint, but can cause serious damage by feeding on fibers in clothing, upholstery and carpet. They can also be pests in dried food products, like flour and cereal.
Regular and thorough removal of lint eliminates Carpet Beetle breeding places. Pay close attention to carpets (next to walls), upholstered furniture, closets, baseboards, and floor cracks. Dry clean clothing before storing in tight boxes (not plastic), and inspect clothing and storage areas in the fall and spring. If you have an infestation, a pest control technician will have the training and equipment to effectively get rid of excessive numbers.
