Carpet Beetles

The varied carpet beetle is a 3 mm-long beetle belonging to the family Dermestidae. This beetle in larval form is common in houses where it usually does little or no noticeable harm, but it is a feared pest in natural history museums. While adults are pollen grazers, larvae feed on natural fibers and can damage carpets, furniture, clothing and insect collections.

As the beetles are extremely common in gardens in the summer it is impossible to eradicate them completely from a normal home. Regular vacuuming will keep their numbers down. The larval form is known as a woolly bear, a name it shares with the larvae of many other moths of the family Arctiidae.
