Carpet Beetle Control Manchester
Carpet Beetle Control
Carpet beetles are pests of animal products and sometimes food products of plant origin. This means they can be found wherever these supplies are handled or stored.
Carpet beetles are now one of the most troublesome pests of textiles, partly due to the use of central heating ensuring uniform temperature for them to thrive, and also the increase in wall-to-wall carpet as this allows the beetles to breed undisturbed.
Dry and warm conditions provide the perfect environment for carpet beetles to develop however, they can survive in foodstuffs low in moisture content e.g. 11-12%
Adult carpet beetles live outside on nectar and pollen, they may also be found on windows and walls. In mild climates the larvae become more apparent, during the autumn they are searching for food and a suitable place to hibernate.
The carpet beetle thrives in environments where they remain undisturbed, for example, inside wardrobes, underneath carpets and around skirting boards.
Significance of Carpet Beetles
Carpet beetle larvae can cause significant damage to any keratin-containing products such as fur, wool, silk, leather and dried animal remains. Some plant-based foods such as, cereal and fibres may also be attacked.
Damage caused by carpet beetles can be determined by clean irregular holes in textiles, usually around the seams. Carpet beetles are not often considered to pose a health risk however the larval hairs can cause skin irritation.
