Beetle Pest Control in Milton Keynes

Variegated carpet beetle......anthrenus verbasci

Common in the UK the adult beetle is about 2-3 mm shaped like a ladybird, the adults feed only on pollen and nectar.

The larvae around 5mm long and covered in short bristles  ( woolly bears ) eat animal protein, wool, leather carpets and clothing.

 

The female lays eggs on a suitable protein source, often an old birds nest where the larvae feed on droppings and feathers. The larvae grows , moulting 4-5 times before pupating in the final larval skin. When hatched the adults will fly in search of pollen, often found on a window ledge looking to make their escape. They return to buildings in the autumn to lay eggs.

Control is with good housekeeping and residual insecticide sprays or dusts.
