One persistent nuisance of almost every household who owns a rug or carpet is the bug ‘carpet beetles’. These pests’ larvae feed on keratin proteins found in skin, hair, or furry materials. So, they have a strong attraction to fur, silk, wool, and other high quality, natural materials, and even synthetic rugs where they make their home.
In spite of regular vacuuming and cleaning at home, your rug can get infested with carpet beetles due to various reasons. That is why it’s important to keep an eye on the signs of carpet beetle infestation in your oriental or area rugs and call for professional help to restore it as soon as possible to minimize damage and repair cost.

While it can be very difficult to see the larvae with a naked eye, you'll know they are there when spots on your rug become thin or loose.
The bald spots will appear because the larvae munch on the base of the hairs, causing them to fall.
The most common places you'll find them are under rugs, under furniture, or in areas where pet hair and lint collects.
If beetles are present you'll likely spot them on walls or window sills where the sun shines.
