Dave Writes,

Is CB PCO Fogger with Pyrethrin effective against carpet beetles?

Attegunus Unicolor (and its larva) hides in carpet and crevices. Pyrethrins and pyrethroids are effective, but will this fogger do the job or will other methods be needed?

Answer:

CB PCO fogger would not be effective against carpet beetles.  This is because this product will not penetrate into cracks and crevices where carpet beetle larvae hide, and it does not leave a residual to kill insects later when they come out of hiding.  This product will only kill what is out in the open when it goes off.  We recommend reading our articles on carpet beetle control.
