Debbie from Arvada, Colorado writes,

Tiny black bugs in crevices and corners of carpet. Don't go into kitchen or anywhere else.

They are so small that they almost look like mold but I have dug up a couple and they are hard shelled, tiny bugs. They like moisture because when I shampooed the carpet, they got worse. When I steamed the carpet, they got worse. I can't stand it, please help! will this work?


Unfortunately without seeing the insect we have no way to identify it. We recommend you either call a professional pest control company and have them come out and do a free inspection (most companies offer a free inspection/identification) or take samples of the insect to your local cooperative extension office to have the insects identified. Once you have the insects identified we can help you select the products you will need to eliminate them.
