Did you know that your carpet is full of fiber? Well it may not be fiber that can eaten by a human but there are some types of beetles that can’t get enough of eating the fibers in your carpets and even your clothes. Carpet beetles are a type of beetle that starts as a larvae egg that is usually laid on a food source such as an area rug or carpet. As the egg hatches, the larvae will feed on the carpet or area rug. This is when they can start to cause some serious damage to the rugs and carpet in your home. When the larvae changes into a beetle form, the beetle will head out in search of nectar and pollen.
