How to Get Rid of Carpet Moths or Carpet Beetles

Carpet Moths and their Larvae cause problems to carpets and rugs making holes and leaving bear patches.

The main cause of damage is made by the Case Bearing Carpet Moth (Tinea pellionella). This moth is pale brown / grey in colour with darker markings on the wings and it has a wingspan of about 15-17mm. However it is the larvae of these carpet moths that do the damage, feeding on mainly natural fibres such as wool or silk in the carpet or rug, but the larvae will also eat away on other soft furnishings and clothes containing natural fibres.

Damage to fitted carpets will primarily be found around the edges of rooms and under static furniture such as sofas, cupboards and wardrobes, rather than in open areas where the larvae are more likely to be disturbed. If damage is being caused to a rug the larvae could be living anywhere in the rug especially if the rug is decorative and does not get much *foot traffic*.

Evidence of Carpet Moth and Larvae attack will be found as loose tufts of carpet fibres or bare patches in the affected areas.

Treatments to kill carpet moths and their larvae can be very effective without the need to replace carpets.
