Maidenhead Pest Control - total carpet beetle control for Maidenhead, Ascot and Windsor
We have found small beetles eating our carpets, where do they come from?
Carpet beetles are found through Maidenhead, Ascot, Windsor and throughout Berkshire; adult carpet beetles spend the summer months feeding on pollen before migrating into houses, hotels and businesses in the autumn where they lay their eggs.
The carpet beetle larvae need an animal protein diet and commonly occur in old birds’ nests; as a potential source of infestation Maidenhead Pest Control will always remove old bird nests from properties.
Damage in the form of bare patches is normally the first sign of a beetle infestation and by then it is too late, a monitoring system for valuable artifact's is the best form of protection.
To control carpet beetles thoroughly vacuum carpets and furnishings and spray with a long lasting residual insecticide.
Another way to treat carpet beetles is to lay desiccant dusts around cracks and crevices to deal with any larvae that are hidden in the dark areas.
Other types of commonly found beetles infesting homes are flour beetles and weevils, larder beetles and grain beetles. All these beetles live in dried goods such as flour and will even be found in dog biscuits.
A common beetle pest is the larder beetles and these are often found in kitchens living on scraps of food that fall down behind units and in gaps between household appliances.
