Occasional Invaders

Varied Carpet beetles get their name from the rainbow of color on their back surfaces.

Color: Black centers, with white, brown and yellow patches in an irregular arrangement
Legs: 6
Shape: Round
Size: 1/16


These pests enjoy dining on carpets, woolen fabrics, dead insects, fur, hides, feathers, horns, hair, silk and bones. It can take three years for varied carpet beetles to grow from and egg to an adult.


Varied carpet beetles are found in homes in attics, Oriental carpets, tapestries and wood-based wall-to-wall carpeting.


Varied carpet beetles feed on dead insects, but also feed on upholstery and carpet, so they can damage those materials. They can also damage clothing fabric.


As with moths, to avoid varied carpet beetle infestations, store clothing in plastic containers. Dry clean clothing thoroughly before storing for long periods of time.
