Signs of a carpet beetle infestation in your home
- Damage to fabric, mainly wool, wool-blends and other natural fibres. You can spot damage to carpets or rugs, clothes, curtains, and even furniture upholstery. In rare occasions, to leather bookbindings even.
- Seeing live or dead adult carpet beetles are a definitive sign of an active infestation.
- Faecal pellets and shed skins. These are also quite the definite signs of carpet beetle infestation. You will find shed skins near their nesting place when the larvae grow into adult beetles. And their poop, which is the size of a grain of salt, might be anywhere – near their nest or where they feed.
How We Conduct Our Carpet Beetle Removal
What Preparations Are Required From You Before, During and After the Treatment
Due to the nature of the methods used in our carpet beetle extermination, there are several requirements which should be fulfilled prior, during or after the session:
- All pets should be removed from the premises—including fish and other tank dwellers;
- All affected areas should be thoroughly vacuumed;
- During the session, you cannot be present on the same floor where the treatment takes place;
- Property should be empty for about two hours after the session, to allow the insecticides to settle;
- Upon arrival, open all windows to increase air flow around your property for 10-15 minutes;
- Do not hoover or mop treated areas for at least 5 days after the carpet beetle control session;
Frequently Asked Question About Carpet Beetles:
No. Their larvae can feed on the fabrics on and near your bed, but they do not ‘live’ in beds as bed bugs do.
Their larvae can feed on the textile but they do not live on the couch. They prefer dark places where you aren’t likely to go often.
Unfortunately, there’s no definite answer or an act that will stop an infestation. Only some general rules that you can do to decrease the chances to a minimum and hope to never get an infestation.
1. Make sure your home doesn’t have any cracks and crevices.
2. Keep pigeons and other birds from nesting near your home.
3. Use naphthalene balls when storing clothes and other textiles.
What Customers Say About Our Services:
- Austin Bramson
I would have been nice if the world worked in a way that if you once get bed bugs and get rid of them they never reappear, but it doesn't. I've had to call for bed bug treatment two times in the last five years and have trusted Panther Pest Control both times. They get the job done without any hassle, plus the prices are budget-friendly. I hope I never have to use them again, but totally recommend them to people in need of adequate pest control treatment in the London area.

Rang the phone, got a quote and booked right away. In two days the flat was already treated for bed bugs and a second visit was scheduled. Quick and professional guys! Loved using Panther Pest Control and strongly recommend them. The price was ok, the exterminators were thorough and gave me some advice. Hopefully I won't have to use them again though.

We’ve never had this many squirrels in the yard before. Maybe one or two have been spotted the previous spring but this year the population has increased a lot! We are afraid of disease transmission and I had to call the exterminators. I’m glad no squirrel were killed. Instead, they were safely trapped and removed from the property.
- Sophie Cross
When my husband and I returned from the holiday in Eastern Europe everything was fine until our bodies got covered in red itchy marks. There were bed bugs all over the apartment. Luckily, the company had a free slot for bed bug treatment on the very same day. We had to spend the night on the bed to lure the bed bugs out and they were fully exterminated by the pesticide.
Facts About Carpet Beetles
Adult carpet beetles feed on pollen, the ones to actually cause damage are their larvae, sometimes referred to as ‘woolly bears’. They are major textile pests, feeding on fabrics, carpets, clothes from animal origin, such as fur, leather, wool, silk and etc. Larvae also enjoy feeding on animal carcasses.
