Carpet Beetle Removal Treatments
Early carpet beetle removal is important as these pests can easily find their way from the outside into your home. They particularly like colorful flowers and plants, such as those often planted around the entrances of homes and businesses. They are small enough to make their way in through open doors, cracks in windows, and other small entryways. They can migrate from one unit to another in multi-unit housing. Just to make it even easier for them to get around, they can also fly!
Once in, these creatures will make meals out of carpet, clothing, furniture, linens, furs, and nearly any type of fabric—even synthetics.
