The larvae from these beetles are normally pests of insects and due to the fact that they are drawn to flowers it is very easy for them to get into your house during spring and lay their eggs. The carpet beetle will begin laying their eggs anywhere from four to eight days after they have entered their adult life. A female carpet beetle will lay roughly 50 eggs during a 3 week period and after she has laid her eggs she will die. In your homes, these eggs will be deposited in places such as air ducts, where there is lint accumulated, and under baseboards and other areas such as this.
After the eggs have been laid, they will hatch within 6 to 11 days during warm periods. However, these eggs can be developed in various different temperatures and can therefore survive in temperature changes better than the clothes moths. Carpet beetles tend to like the dark; therefore, you are unlikely to find them in areas that are well lit. You will find them more in the lower areas of your closets and they can be easily found in woollen materials, in your upholstered furniture such as couch, and they can easily be found on the edge of carpeting underneath your baseboards.
Due to the fact that the larger larvae tend to like to wander, they can easily be found all over your house in areas such as: your kitchen, your bathroom, and you will be able to see them crawling on the ceilings and the walls as well. The carpet beetles are as annoying as the fur beetle due to the fact that once you have them; they can be very hard to get rid of.
