What Do Carpet Beetles Look Like?
As mentioned, carpet beetles can consist of a variety of different species. This might not be surprising since approximately 25% of all animal species are a type of beetle. However, “skin beetles” or Dermestidae are usually the most common carpet beetle that gets into homes in a number great enough to constitute an infestation.
Skin Beetles Are Usually:
- Circular or slightly ovoid
- Only a few millimeters wide; about the size of a pinhead
- Brown and white speckled
Are Carpet Beetles Harmful?
The greatest risk of a carpet beetle infestation is an allergic reaction, which will usually be mild, such as skin irritation. Carpet beetles like to eat “dead” organic materials like wool fabrics, feathers, and dust, which is comprised mostly of shed skin cells. As a result, some of the most damage that carpet beetles can do in your home comes in the form of clothing and furniture damage. Although, if carpet beetles crawl into your pantry in search of food, then they can contaminate bags of cereal, pasta, crackers, etc., and make someone ill.
