Carpet Beetle Control

With their moth-like tendencies to gnaw on clothes and other animal-derived materials, carpet beetles are usually the culprit for insect-caused material damage, even more so than moths, and though they’re generally harmless critters, carpet beetles can ruin your clothes, carpet, blankets, and – let’s face it – they’re pretty revolting.

If you’re trying to figure out whether you have carpet beetles in your home, their oval-shaped, black, white, and yellow patterned bodies make them fairly distinguishable from other insects and beetles.

Despite their distinctive patterning, they are only 1-4mm long, making them a difficult pest to spot if you aren’t looking for them. Additionally, carpet beetle larvae are brown or black and covered in long, thick hairs.

How Do You Know If You Have A Carpet Beetle Problem?

Far from invading carpets exclusively – despite their misleading name – carpet beetles are fond of pretty much any soft, organic material, so if you notice specific damage to your rugs, woolen clothes, blankets, and similar animal-derived products – leaving little slits in the material – then it’s likely that you have a carpet beetle problem.

If you’re not sure whether the damage you spot is carpet beetle damage, then there are other tell-tale signs to look out for. If you notice larval skins around your Overland Park home – which are shed routinely by the little critters – or you see tiny beetles crawling up your walls, or dead on the window sills, then the chances are that you have a carpet beetle infestation.

In general, a carpet beetle infestation is just a case of bad luck, but if you don’t vacuum and clean the materials in your home regularly, this can be a particular attractant to carpet beetles – and may increase the chances of your home in Overland Park suffering from a carpet beetle infestation – since they eat hair, dead insects and dead skin, all of which can usually be found on an unclean carpet.

When Can You Expect To See Carpet Beetles?

Since carpet beetles and their larvae hibernate in Winter, you’re most likely to experience a carpet beetle infestation in the Spring. Typically, adult carpet beetles are most active in Overland Park from April through until June, while carpet beetle grubs are at their most abundant in October.

Used Mantis for a little over a year now, and have always had the same service individual (Jake) for each visit who is always super helpful, professional, and quick to assist with out of band service requests and/or questions.

Carol H. / Lee's Summit, MO

Great Quality!

Mantis is great quality at a reasonable prices. I've used them for about a year and my insect issues are non-existent. Scheduling is a breeze and they come when they say they will come. Never been an issue having a technician come out between regular service intervals as well. Derek was super polite, professional and punctual. In addition to him taking care of the wasps nests, he even applied a granular barrier in the event rain washed out the spray application. Overall, a highly satisfied customer!

Paul K. / Lee's Summit, MO

Fantastic Job!

Jason did a fantastic job. Called to say he was able to come earlier in the day if it worked out for us. He explained everything that he was doing and the expected outcome of the service. Professional and easy to talk with.
