General information

The Quick Bits

• Die at lower temperature than bed bugs
• Carpet beetles die at 120°F
• Often mistaken for bed bugs
• ePro electric heaters are lethal
• Do not bite humans
• Nymphs eat animal fibers like wool

According to PCT, carpet beetles are often misidentified as bed bugs. These insects are similarly sized to bed bugs, however they do not bite mammals or consume their blood. As their name implies, carpet beetles infest carpets and many other items composed of wool, fur, felt, silk, feathers, skins, or leather. Materials like these contain keratin, a fibrous animal protein which the larvae consume and are able to digest. Cotton and synthetic fabrics such as polyester and rayon are rarely attacked unless blended with wool, or heavily soiled with food stains or body oils. Infestations of carpet beetles can develop undetected, causing harm to vulnerable items.

Carpet beetles are similar to clothes moths in that their larvae are the segment of the life cycle that feeds on the keratin fibers.

Often found in our homes and businesses, carpet beetle damage is often mistaken for that of clothes moths. Adults are about the same size and shape as bed bugs, roughly the size and shape of an apple seed. Color ranges from black to various ‘mottled’ patterns of white, brown, yellow, and orange. Unlike bed bugs, adult carpet beetles feed on flower pollen and do not bit humans nor damage woolens and other fabrics.

Obvious breeding sites include rugs. Not-so-obvious sites include clothes and fabrics stored in cupboards and chests, wools suits hanging in closets, and “dust bunnies” composed of pet hair under beds, along baseboards, and in air vents and heating ducts. The larvae exclusively feed on animal-based materials such as wool, felt, fur, silk, feathers, and leather. Commonly attacked consumer items include coats, suits, sweaters, scarves, blankets, rugs, down pillows and comforters, and upholstery. The larvae prefer to feed within fabric folds (hems, collars, cuffs, etc.) in closets, chests, and boxes where items are stored for long periods. Clothing and blankets in regular use are seldom attacked; the same is true of rugs that are routinely vacuumed. The edges and undersides of rugs and carpets are most often infested.
