How to Get Rid of Carpet Beetles

Carpet beetle larvae can thrive in homes if left alone due to their diet of fabric and animal products. Adults fly inside through open windows and doors and lay eggs on different surfaces like furniture, clothing, or rugs or often come from infested items that are brought inside a home. If we don’t clean our items a new carpet beetle may hatch and start the cycle of carpet beetles again. You can do measures to prevent the carpet beetles from growing and also measures to get rid of them.

Keep Your Home Clean

As a first step of it, start vacuuming the areas where there are any signs of adults or larvae such as walls, carpets, rugs, and curtains. After that, you should do a steam cleaning of the same areas you vacuumed. The heat of the steamer will remove the remaining beetles and eggs. You can also use hot water and to wash clothes and linens or you can dispose of them in a sealed garbage container so that others don’t get infected.

Using Chemicals          

Start to wipe or spray the surfaces with vinegar. There are many recommendations we would suggest you mix apple cider vinegar with water and apply to shelves and cupboards. You can also apply boric acid or sprinkle some of it on rugs and furniture that will kill any remaining beetles. You can also use an indoor insecticide directly to kill carpet beetles. There are sprays available to kill these insects.
