Not all Australian insects are environment protectors. Some are fabric eater and bloodsucker. Beetles roam around in search of blood and laying eggs. Carpets are more prone to dust and hair on the floor, so it is easy to breed beetles in the carpet or under the carpet. Because of that, mites and other insects are also easy to breed. It doesn’t feel good to have a beetle-like insect on the carpet. Therefore, let’s understand the identity of troublesome insects that may reoccur even if they are vacuumed and how to properly get rid of them.

4 Points To Get Rid Of Beetles And Clean Your Carpet
1. Vacuum Carpet
As a first step, you should vacuum the carpet, rugs, furniture. Beetles hide in a dark place like under the furniture and carpet. Vacuum the entire possible place. Unfold the folds and vacuum from the edges and all the corners of carpet.
2. Steam Vacuum
Maybe a normal vacuum is not enough. Use the Steam cleaning process in the same area where you have done vacuum. Steaming cleaning gives heat and moisture to the carpet. The heat will help a lot to remove beetles and eggs from the carpet.
3. Use Boric Acid
Using a pesticide is good to remove all remaining beetles and mites from the carpets. Sprinkle some boric acid on the carpet and leave it for a few hours. Boric acid is easily available. After 2-3 hours, vacuum the residue and dispose the dust in the separate bag and throw it. Do not keep the bag in the house, they will enter the home again.
4. Clean The Pantry
A messy pantry is where Beetles found the food to live. Clean pantry is essential. Check all the food storage areas (pantry, garage, fridge, etc). If you notice a sign of small bugs around the food, then throw away grains, flour and other items from where they are prevalent. Wipe all the shelves and cabinets with a regular household cleaner. Do not spray pesticides on the food storage area. It is unnecessary and causes more harm than insects. When changing food, store it in a closed plastic or glass container.
