Need a carpet beetle solution?

Carpet beetles feed on natural fibers such as wools, silks, fur and carpets rather than on humans, but that doesn’t mean they are any less of a problem in your home or business. This tiny nuisance can eat fabrics and be costly in terms of the replacement of these items.
