The size of carpet beetles is 1-4 mm. They have an oval shaped body and have black, white and yellow coloration. Some species of these beetles also tend to have orange coloration. Larvae are black to light brown in color and are covered in hair. They are a little larger than the adults.

The adult carpet beetles feed on pollen of the flowers. Larvae feed on a variety of plant and animal-based material which includes hair, dead insects, carcasses, processed foods and stored grains. Larvae are often found near the food source. The adult carpet beetles are active in the day and are attracted to light in the nights.

Carpet beetles infest carpets, blankets, comforters, coats, pillows, wool, clothing, and upholstered furniture. Generally, carpet beetles do not attack the synthetic fibers but when these items are soiled by perspiration, food and soil, they may feed on them too. The carpet beetle infestations spread quickly.

The entry points for carpet beetles in homes are doors, windows, and other openings. They can also be brought in on flowers and cut plants. Some carpet beetles take shelter inside the nests of birds, and can live in chimneys or walls.

They cause damage to furnishings, human clothing, and other items. Although they move slowly, they are capable of infesting entire homes and causing severe damage within weeks. They also damage the ornamental flora having light petals.

The adult carpet beetles as well as larvae choose to feed in the dark and silent areas. The identification of an infestation thus becomes very difficult. One comes to know about the infestation only when it has spread widely. The treatment then has to be left on the professional pest control services.
