Carpet Beetles Control, How To Spot Them And Get Rid Of Them
Beetles actually form one of the most abundant forms of life on the planet, with approximately 350,000 species in existence, they account to more than 25 percent of life-forms. For humans, it is impossible to come across most of the species of beetle. However, there’s one species that virtually everyone has come across at some point: carpet beetle.
Carpet beetle is one of the most dominant pests in households in North America. These household pests can cause damage to even the highly well-maintained homes. For that reason, it’s often imperative to begin your carpet beetle control efforts at the earliest signs of infestation. At Mega Pest Control service, we have a carpet-beetle Control Service, specially designed to help homeowners in Vancouver and Abbotsford curb these destructive pests permanently.
Carpet beetles in brief
These household pests are among the most destructive species of beetles to homes. They are unlike some species like the wood beetle that only feed on wood. Carpet beetles can feed on virtually anything. Before launching your carpet beetle control efforts, it’s essential that you understand the risks that these pests pose, and the main reason why they invaded your homestead in the first place.
Even though carpet-beetles live outdoors, they most prefer to stay indoors where they can easily have access to shelter and food. Once they’ve found their way into your home, they seek for those dark spots such as under furniture, under baseboards or even in cabinets. But for an easier access to food, they live staying at carpet edges, in upholstered furniture and around the door casings.
Since they can feed on almost anything, the extent of damage they can cause in a house is great. They can feed on leather, furniture, blankets, clothing, pet hairs, crumbs, pet food, dead insects plus many other things that it can land on. Even if there was a chance that tile ceramics can be eaten, a carpet beetle wouldn’t hesitate giving it a shot!
Their breeding is rather like wildfire. Even though they vary with the species, a typical carpet beetle would produce up to four generations. They start their egg laying spree the moment they find their way into your home. Even when you think you’ve successfully eliminated these pests from your home, their eggs will probably remain behind to introduce a new generation of hungry carpet beetles ready to eat anything and everything! They like laying eggs in mouse hideouts, birds’ nests as well as any other place that gives them easier access to something they can feed on.
Apart from just causing damage to your property, most household pests also have various types of diseases that they can spread to humans with lots of ease. Luckily, carpet-beetles are an exception.
Carpet beetles don’t carry any form of disease that can affect humans. But despite the fact that they won’t bring any diseases to your home, that’s doesn’t mean you don’t mind having them around. They can damage pretty anything in your home, including upholstery, furniture, carpets, clothing, leathered items, pet food, and many more. They basically feed on anything that has animal products, probably the reason why they have leather, silk, wool, fur among other such things as their favorites. Most homeowners usually mistake damages caused by these insects for damages as a result of moths. Even though they cause pretty much similar type of damages, carpet-beetles prefer certain types of fabric or materials, boring large holes. On the other hand, moths have a sporadic feeding habit resulting to scattered holes.
