Exterminating Carpet Beetles
Carpet Beetles are very small in size, similar to that of an apple seed. Because they are able to cause so much damage to fabric and upholstery in your home, be sure to call The Killers as soon as possible instead of trying DIY carpet beetle removal in your home.
This insect’s larva is commonly misidentified as bed bugs because of the areas they like to hide. Often you will find carpet beetles around the baseboards, mattresses, or climbing up the walls. The larva stage is about 3/16th of an inch long, and the adults, also found in groups, have little hairs protruding all over their bodies.
Carpet beetles can also be found in areas around bird nests and dry grass. They can damage wool clothing, fabrics, and feed on hair particles around your baseboards. We offer skilled carpet beetle removal in Portland and surrounding areas.

Carpet Beetle Removal Treatments for Portland Homes
Early carpet beetle removal is important as these pests can easily find their way from the outdoors into the living spaces of 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.
Some warning signs you need carpet beetle removal include:
