What’s Eating Your Fabrics?
You have an infestation of fabric pests, either clothes moths, carpet beetles, or hide beetles, but fabrics don’t seem to be the source of the problem. Where do you look next? These pests can be found infesting almost anything made of animal materials, including dead animals themselves. You’re looking primarily for the hidden larval stage
Use a knife or small spatula to pull out bits of lint from under baseboards, the edge of wall-to-wall carpeting, and around the bottoms of door thresholds. Check the underside of wool rugs.
Ask about stored wool, fur, or feather items that may have been forgotten in an attic, basement, or garage. Blankets, down pillows or comforters, rugs, fur coats, and wool clothing are all susceptible especially if stored without being cleaned first.
Look for old, overstuffed chairs or sofas. Upholstered furniture with wool covers, or stuffed with animal hair, or with accumulations of pet hair could be the source of fabric pests.
Ask where the pets sleep. Look for accumulations of pet hair in these areas or pet bedding that is matted with pet hair.
Check for accumulations of lint, crumbs, dead insects, and pet hair under heavy furniture, under beds, in dark corners, and in closets. Look for accumulations of lint and hair inside floor registers, air ducts, bathroom vents, and clothes dryer vents.
Look for animal-based decorative objects on shelves or hanging on walls- items such as animal trophies, oriental rugs, or anything made of horn, hide, feathers, or bone.
Check for flowering shrubs around the home’s foundation. Adult carpet beetles feed outside on pollen and nectar and can enter homes from nearby flowering plants.
Ask if there have been problems lately with mice, rats, birds, bats, squirrels or other animals inside the house or in attics, garages, chimneys, basements. Check these areas, if accessible, for evidence of carpet or hid beetles on animal carcasses or in animal nests.
Check attics for wasp or bee nests or accumulations of overwintering dead insects such as cluster flies, stink bugs, or wasps.
Finally, check other obscure but possible infestation sites: piano felts or felt backing, insect collections, dried flower arrangements, natural bristle hair or clothes brushes, bee or yellowjacket nests inside wall voids, the glue in book bindings, and horse-hair insulation behind old plaster. Dermestids (carpet hid beetles) can also be found infesting stored food products, seeds (including seed pictures), dry pet food, and rodent bait.
