How to treat carpet beetle grubs

Commonly known as woolly bears, they’re quite common in spring. They look like maggots with brown hairs (hence the name). As they hatch they munch through their surroundings, leaving holes in the way clothes moths do.

Check for damage to clothes in wardrobes and chests of drawers, carpets and rugs. Wash or dry clean affected items and vacuum carpets thoroughly (empty the bag straight away).

Buy Rentokil Insectrol Dust for Carpet Beetle from hardware shops. Once you’re rid of them, make sure you clean well, removing fluff and dust from under and behind furniture, and vacuum carpets thoroughly.
