Carpet beetles can cause humans to experience an itchy, bumpy rash that can often be mistaken for bed bug bites. They're widely considered to be 'pantry pests' because of their ability to fly and access tricky areas. Once there, they cleverly lay eggs in places that will provide their larvae with an easy access to a food source. The larvae often worm their way into animal food, milled items, seeds and more which obviously creates an unhygienic environment.

However, with our range of carpet beetle killing products (including sprays, powders and smoke bombs), we've made it easy for you to get rid of them for good.
