How should I get rid of tiny carpet beetles in my apartment?


Answer by  DaffodilPetals (105)

First, vacuum your entire house to get rid of the carpet beetles. Then, completely wash with hot soap and water, anything that they have touched. After that, spread borax around the house. It is not harmful at all to humans, but kills carpet beetles. You could also try the Gentrol carpet treatment.

Well, either you need to bleach out your carpet or you need to spray raid all over the place. Otherwise you won't be able to get rid of them. An insect spray helps.

To get rid of carpet beetles the best way is to use a boric acid. It kills almost any bug and is completely harmless to humans. Boric acid is a naturally occurring compound mined in primarily in the Southwest of the U.S.A. It would also be wise to wash all your clothes and bedding in hot water.

First vacuum, make sure you look for caterpillar like babies too. Wash all fabric in very hot, soapy water and you can add Borax. Use a steam cleaner on carpets.

If you live in an apartment, you can get the building manager to call the exterminator. Or, you can apply Borax liberally into the carpet and rub it in.

First vacuum well (with a shop vac if possible). Then, clean all your fabrics since they will also be on items like curtains and pillows. Then shake 'Borax'(boric acid) over the carpet and in corners of wood floors to keep the beetles from coming back.
