Varied carpet beetles are 1-2 millimetres in size, round, and black and white speckled though may just appear black. They will often appear on windowsills as they are attracted to the large source of light and will reappear shortly after when cleared away as they continue hatching from pupa.

Carpet moths or clothes moths look like a long grain of rice in their larval form and are found near areas of damaged carpet or clothing. The moths are small and brown/grey speckled.

Aging carpets, and furniture are attractive habitats for carpet beetles. Look also to any recent additions of second-hand furniture or furnishings to your home as a possible source too.

Carpet beetles are common throughout Wellington, Homes are more vulnerable where the carpets and furniture are aging. They prefer natural wool fibres, so having wool carpets and furnishings will make your home more attractive to these critters.

Carpet Beetles will continue to destroy your carpet, fabric furnishings, and clothing until you interrupt their bad behaviour. A few holes in clothing, or bare patches of carpet may be bearable if you can hide them. It is very likely before long a few holes will become many though. You will need to remove them at all stages of their lifecycle to be effective.

The current infestation can be completely eliminated quickly in a single treatment. Taking steps to prevent reinfestation such as replacing old/worn carpets and being aware of what might be hitch hiking on second-hand furniture, furnishings, and clothing is key here.

Carpet beetles are unlikely to disappear without treatment. This answer will be different for everyone but the considerations are the same. How much do you want to remove carpet beetles from your home? How much time and money do you have to dedicate to this task? And how certain are you, you will be able to get a result based on the knowledge and product you have at hand? Take a look at the DIY question below to get an idea of what it will take.

To get the best relief from carpet beetles a professional treatment really is going to get the quickest results with complete elimination, and those results are guaranteed

DIY carpet beetle products can be effective if applied correctly, although in my experience they are often not applied well. They often have trouble eliminating the full lifecycle of the carpet beetle leaving behind the next generation of eggs to hatch and with them a reinfestation. These treatments involve the use of insecticides which have adverse effects to health if not used correctly, with proper precautions taken during and after treatment.

Even when applied in a professional manner DIY carpet beetle products will usually be effective for a shorter length of time than a professional treatment. In my experience DIY methods need frequent reapplication due to the lower volume of insecticide present in their solutions and generally are not strong enough. It is not uncommon to get called to do a carpet beetle control treatment where someone has spent a lot of time, effort, and money on DIY treatments with less than satisfactory results and ongoing damage of carpet and furnishings.

Regular vacuuming and cleaning removes beetles, larvae, and eggs. Carpet beetles are attracted to natural fibres, so synthetic fibre carpets will help prevent them, though replacing your carpet may not be practical or desired. Checking second-hand furniture, furnishings, and clothing before bringing it into your home is a good idea.

Safety is always our top priority with treatments. Some of the measures we take with carpet beetle control are selecting non-carcinogenic products, targeting product only at areas requiring treatment reducing unnecessary residual product stand down time, and ensuring people and pets are excluded from treatment zones until product is dry. We will provide you with clear direction on this as part of our safety-first approach.
