Do you have carpet beetles in your Flagstaff home? The carpet beetle can cause extensive damage to carpets, bedding, clothes, and upholstery. However, it’s not the adults that do most of the damage. It’s the larvae of carpet beetles that do the dirty work of damaging your personal property. The adults don’t get off that easily since they are the ones that infiltrate your home and lay their eggs where food for their young is abundant.

Adult carpet beetles will fly into your home through open doors or windows and then lay eggs on any suitable food source. A female carpet beetle will lay between 25 to 100 eggs in the spring, and these eggs will hatch within two weeks afterward. The time it takes for carpet beetle larvae to develop into adults depends on the availability of food and their environment’s humidity. It can sometimes take a year or longer for carpet beetle larvae to develop into an adult.
