CARPET BEETLE CONTROL INFORMATION

CARPET BEETLE CONTROL INFORMATION

Picture is of a Black Carpet Beetle (2-4mm) it is related to the Furniture Carpet Beetle, Museum Beetle and Fur Beetle, the latter being larger (4-6mm) and black with some white markings. This stage of the Carpet Beetle is not the evil doer, it is the larvae stage below (woolly bear) that you need to worry about. The Carpet Beetles fly, have a life span of 2-6 weeks in spring/summer, they also feed outdoors on flower pollen and nectar. The beetle does no harm in the home, other than lay eggs onto katrin containing products ie: wool, fur, leather, silk and animal remains.

We recommend the use of Pheromone Traps for detection of adult beetles. Catch them before they mate then damage will be minimised. Carpet Beetle Control Pheromone traps may only be available between March-November as not many adults are expected to be around in December/Jan/Feb.

WOOLY BEAR CONTROL INFORMATION WOOLY BEAR CONTROL INFORMATION
Wooly bears are destructive to home furnishings, feeding on carpets and sometimes clothes.

4-5mm long, brown in colour and possess three bunches of golden hairs, arranged in pairs on the posterior abdominal segments.

They avoid light and will roll up (not laugh!!) when disturbed.

They have several moulting stages so you may find many larval moults.

They can survive up to ten months and can live through the winter months.

Treatment will involve the application of a residual insecticide to affected items (usually carpets).

Do not apply insecticides to clothing. Check airing cupboards carefully as these are the main source of infestation.

If you have birds nests in the roof, these can also be a source of infestation.

Spraying Pro-Active C to all affected areas will gain good control, where you cannot use a liquid use Pro-Active Dust (safe and natural) liberally sprinkled throughout the area.
