Jen from Milwaukee, Wisconsin writes,

Will Essentria IC3 kill carpet beetles?

I am looking for an all natural product to use to control carpet beetles as I have two small children. We have found damage in a closet as well as larvae in a bathroom (1 per day under the bath mat for a couple of weeks). We have cleaned the areas thoroughly and applied Essentria to the baseboards in the bathroom. Not only are we still finding larvae, we do not see any dead. Please advise.


Essentria IC3 Insecticide Concentrate is not specifically labeled for carpet beetles.

We would recommend using EcoVia EC. It is made with plant oils as well as is specifically labeled for carpet beetles.
