Recent calls have led our technicians out to homes to find the varied carpet beetle. The varied carpet beetle is a common household pest found throughout the US.
Carpet beetles feed on natural fibers that can be found in upholstery or clothing, carpet, insect carcasses, and animal parts such as furs, hair, etc. Most carpets are made of synthetic fabrics and are not of concern. It is the natural fibers, like wool, that carpet beetles feed on. The varied carpet beetle enters the home in search of these food items and often cause damage. They can be found in attics, carpets, and curtains in search of the food items above.
To avoid varied carpet beetles, store clothing in plastic containers and dry clean clothing thoroughly before storing for long periods of time.
