Black carpet beetles

Black carpet beetles are small beetles whose size varies between 3.3 mm and 5.5 mm when they are adults. The larvae are thin and long, and they have a tuft of hairs at the end of their abdomen. They are brown or black and about 12.5 mm long.
Back carpet beetle larvae are the main problem, because of their need to feed on protein-rich sources, which they find in numerous places around the house. In addition, contact with black carpet beetle larvae hair is irritating and may cause dermatitis, which is sometimes confused with skin irritations due to bedbugs.
