How do I get rid of carpet beetles? I have two small children and a cat.
We have seen them in the kitchen and master bath on the linoleum, and have been vacuuming the carpet every few days. I have also sprayed the outside of the house around the doors and windows with an over the counter Bayer product.
The main thing you should do is a thorough inspection to see if you can find any infested items. If you do find infested items it will be necessary to thoroughly clean the area or dispose of the infested item and treat the cracks and crevices with a residual spray such as D-Force HPX. You can learn more about carpet beetles by reading our article Carpet Beetle Pest Control
