We had a call out recently for an insect that we have not dealt with for a long time, the Varied Carpet Beetle, such a lovely insect to look at, however not so lovely when they are responsible for eating the fabric in your home.

The adult is 3mm in size, the larvae are hairy and hence they are called the wooly bear.The adult lives for about two weeks, the female will produce approximately 100 eggs and will hide them in cracks and crevices for protection.

As with most pests a good cleaning schedule will help in denying breeding sites and it is also advisable to get rid of any unwanted clothing etc.

Aberkil provide a service spray with a residual and space spray to control Varied Carpet Beetle.
