Carpet Beetles Pest Control Sydney

Carpet Beetles Pest Control Services Sydney

Carpet beetles are a big nuisance, especially if you have expensive carpets and clothing made from natural animal-origin materials. These beetles feed on a protein called keratin and are known to cause considerable damage in a short amount of time. Carpet beetles are mostly found inland and in the regions away from the coast line where the environment is a little drier.

At Knock-Down Pest Control, we have experience in eliminating carpet beetles and know exactly how to remove them effectively. If you suspect you have a carpet beetle infestation, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

What are the signs?

Carpet beetles will only be found in places with organic matter and materials that contain keratin. You’ll find them in carpets, cabinets, fabrics, real flowers, and dark places. Here are some signs you need to look out for:

Knockdown Pest Control Sydney What Attracts Them

Carpet beetles can also be attracted to dog food, paint brushes, and other such items.

These creatures are usually easy to control if you have time to vacuum your carpets daily. A strong vacuum will extract most the beetles, eggs, and larvae from the carpet. However, this isn’t entirely successful and can sometimes leave behind some eggs and larvae. If you have a severe infestation, you should call a professional to handle the job.

How Can Knock-Down Help You Remove Beetles?

Beetles can cause extensive amounts of damage, especially to expensive wool rugs and carpets. We always aim to eliminate these pests without causing any damage to the carpet or other materials. Here’s how we approach the pest control:

  • Cleaning With Heat – If vacuuming doesn’t work, we will clean the carpets with heat and steam. These bugs are sensitive to heat and will die from the exposure. Heat will also clean and sanitise your carpet so you’re essentially killing two birds with one stone. We make sure the temperature of the steam is controlled and monitored during the process. We don’t want to damage the integrity of the carpets while we clean them.
  • Discarding Garments – If the carpet bugs have caused too much damage to clothing and destroyed the structural integrity of the carpets, you need to discard these items. Some people pack the items and store them in the garage. That only provides a more hospitable environment to the pests and increases the chances of future infestations.
  • Chemical Treatments – Chemical treatments are effective against pockets of intense infestations. We use chemical agents that kill carpet beetles without causing any harm to the fabric. We’ll apply it carefully to areas that eggs and larvae to stop future infestations as well.

Knockdown Pest Control Sydney

Attempted to organise an inspection and service for my mother's house. Multiple businesses were unable to fit her in with an average waitime of a week. Andrew took the time to assess the problem and that she was an elderly person. He was very responsive and thorough and accommodated the service inlight of the distress, discomfort and anxiety the mites were causing her. She got a good nights rest- bite-free. Many thanks for your compassion and care.

Jamie came and did such a great job at our apartment block. He found the source of the mites, removed their nests, blocked up the holes, sprayed the apartments & ceiling all in record time. He was being bombarded by all the neighbours and he was friendly and professional. We will be requesting him again in the future.

Jed was so calming from the moment he arrived and mind you I had emailed at around 4am worrying about a swarm of insects. He was a true professional and talked me through everything clearly from start to finish. The whole service, from the early morning call to follow up my enquiry was effortless and super fast. Highly recommend - thanks Jed, Andrew and team!!
