What are Carpet Beetles

Carpet Beetles (Family Dermestidae) are small, oval-shaped insects that can cause significant damage to fabrics, carpets, and other household items. Adult Carpet Beetles are typically 2-5mm long and can be black, brown, or mottled with a variety of colors. The larvae, also known as "woolly bears," are responsible for the majority of the damage, as they feed on a wide range of organic materials, including wool, fur, silk, and feathers.
