Carpet Beetles

Carpet Beetles (Anthrenus verbasci)




Carpet beetles resemble ladybird beetles in shape, but are usually less than 1/4" long. They may display a rainbow of colour on their back surfaces. It can take 250 days to three years for varied carpet beetles to grow from an egg to an adult.


Carpet beetles are found in homes in attics, Oriental carpets, tapestries and wood-based wall-to-wall carpeting. They also feed on dead insects, furs, hides, feathers, horns, hair, silk and bones.


They damage carpets, tapestries, clothing fabric.


  • Store wool and silk clothing in plastic containers.
  • Dry-clean clothing thoroughly before storing for long periods of time.
  • Hoover wool carpets regularly.
