Carpet Beetle Control Bournemouth

Carpet Beetle

A common pest found destroying fabrics in our homes is the carpet beetle. Ranging from 2-5mm long, there are three main species in Britain which are responsible. The varied carpet beetle, resembling a small mottled ladybird and often brown, grey and cream in colour. The fur beetle, black in colour with a single spot on each wing case and the rarer black carpet beetle which ranges from a reddish brown to black.

The larvae of the carpet beetle, often known as ‘woolly bears’ are a major textile pest in Britain, it is the larvae that consume a wide range of animal-based items such as hair, wool, fur and feathers. As a result of this they often infest carpets, blankets, upholstered furniture, pillows, clothing etc. Although considered unusual, they have also been found feasting on synthetic fabrics soiled by food, oils and perspiration. The life cycle of the carpet beetle takes approximately one year and are often found most active during October before they take shelter to hibernate.

Treatment

Urban Pest Control can offer different treatment methods depending on the size of infestation. An insecticide ULV fogging machine or smoke generator can be applied within each room whilst a residual insecticide spray may be applied around windows, ceilings, walls and carpets. All treatments carried out adhere to COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Heath) Regulations 2002.

After treatment we can use insect monitoring traps this is an essential part of integrated pest management. Insect monitors are used to alert to the presence of any new carpet beetle infestation entering your property. Most infestation begin from adult carpet beetle flying in through open windows in the summer months.
