All About Pests
Carpet Beetles feed on animal-based items such as hair, wool, hide, silk, feathers, accumulations of dead insects and similar dried, animal-based materials. Carpet beetles earned their name back when carpets really were made of wool. Carpet beetles continue to be significant pests of animal-based fabrics and are important pests of wool and silk clothing, antique rugs and tapestries, and museum specimens.
