Carpet beetles are a family of bugs referred to as dermestids, that reside in homes, warehouses, or any other similar location with a sufficient food source. Although there are several types of carpet beetles, they have a number of similarities in feeding patterns, causing damage, and resilience. They feed on fabrics, furs, carpets, preserved specimen, and stored food; causing considerable damage. Some of the notable carpet beetle species include the varied beetle, the black beetle, and the furniture beetle. They all have similar life cycles; eggs hatch after a few weeks into the larvae, and later pupate depending on the conditions they live in.
