Black Carpet Beetle Control in Calgary by Pestica

In North America alone there are 111 families with roughly 30,000 species of beetles (White, 1983). Black carpet beetle is found in Calgary and area. This is the most destructive carpet beetle. The larvae attack a wide variety of materials from seeds, grains, insects and dried dead birds to materials containing wool, fur, leather and silk. They may be found in feed mills but often feed on the carcasses of other insects. They are usually found on undisturbed stored fabrics in dark locations. Adults are shiny, black oval beetles 3-4 mm long with brown legs. They are covered with very fine. The slender hairy, reddish-brown larvae have a long tuft of hairs on the tip of the abdomen. The adult beetles do not cause damage but feed on pollen and nectar. They may be found at window or on flowers, especially spirea shrubs. They undergo complete metamorphosis’ The female lays up 100 eggs in any dry material of animal origin such as woolen items. They normally require about one year to complete their life cycle, depending on temperature and food supply. About 80% of the life cycle may be passed in the larval stage. Adults live from one to two months, larvae from 4 to 22 months.

How do Carpet Beetles get entry home?
Adults fly inside through open doors and windows to lay eggs on furniture, clothing, or rugs and often are introduced when infested items are brought inside a home.

Which stage in the life cycle of the common carpet beetle damages fabric materials?
The larval stage in the life cycle of the common carpet beetle damages fabric materials. 

Do Carpet beetles bite?
No, they do not bite humans, but they can cause a bumpy, itchy, rash that is sometimes mistaken for bed bug bites. This is due to prolonged contact with the hair fibers on the body of carpet beetle larvae. Airborne fibers from carpet beetles can also cause respiratory tract and eye irritation.

What types of things does Carpet Beetle eat?
Possible food sources for carpet beetles include:

  • Stored clothing (especially those made of wool, fur, or leather)
  • Tapestries and drapes
  • Woolen blankets
  • Furniture and upholstered items (especially those containing wool or leather)
  • Mattresses and pillows;
  • Pet foods (especially meat-based foods such as liver bits)
  • Dead animals, birds, or insects in attics, crawl spaces, and basements


  • Technician will start by checking the exterior and interior of your home for obvious entry ways for the beetles and recommend repair options. 
  • Technician will use the options of vacuuming, aerosol, dusting, and Residual Insecticidal Spray depending upon the level of infestation
  • All treatments will be made with your safety in mind to ensure your health
