Yes they are varied carpet beetles I was so consumed lately with CAs so I just typed carpenter instead of carpet beetles :)
Well I noticed last late winter in the stage that you guys have on your website number 12 larvae stage.
Well basically first one I noticed was under mattress when I was pulling sheets to do the laundry . Then I saw on headboard after close inspection they where everywhere on the carpet on every room even on tiles in the bathroom , on baseboard on hardwood floors , behind the doors so I panicked of course and was reading all this scary stories online how they can lay eggs in your head since hair is something they into too.
I was sleeping with lights on it was crazy.
All I did is vaccuum because I know if I put any kind if chemical inside the house I will worry too much.
But lately no more larvae just adult beetles here and there I just smash them and get rid of them.
You mentioned about health concern what exactly did you mean . These beetles can cause some health problems ?
We do not have any wool capet r just cheap builder grade carpet about 80 % of the house some hardwood floors and kitchen vynil floors.
Could you give me idea what to look for to find the source I went through every inch of the house even air duct.
I didn't know if I find source I could get rid off all carpet beetles.
I thought all I could do is vacuum well besides some pesticide of course.
Do I just type my email address here ?
Thanks ,
