carpet beetles

Carpet beetles are small beetles that are about 4 to 5 mm long. They feed on animal and plant fibers and lay eggs near their food source. The larvae of carpet beetles are the most harmful as they can eat the fibers of fabrics and leave holes in clothes and carpets. The problem with carpet beetles is that they are often not visible and can spread quickly, especially if they find food.

Effective carpet beetle control

When it comes to storing clothes and carpets, the last thing on your mind may be small bugs that could cause damage. Unfortunately, carpet beetles are a common problem and can feed on wool, silk, cotton and other materials used in clothing and carpets. But don’t worry, there is a solution that solves the problem in a safe and effective way: freezing.

Carpet beetle pests in the home: prevent spread

Fortunately, freezing clothes and carpets is an effective way to kill carpet beetles and prevent further spread. Freezing clothing and carpets at -20 degrees Celsius for three days kills all stages of the carpet beetle, including the larvae and eggs. Freezing is a safe and natural way to control these critters without the need for harmful chemicals.
