We hope our reader is able to get rid of the carpet beetle larvae in her home before she is dealing with an infestation. As we mentioned, she should start cleaning to eliminate these creatures ASAP. The silver lining? While these larvae can destroy household items, they aren’t considered dangerous to human health!
One of our readers sent us an email about some orange worms that she had found in her laundry basket. She was inquiring about what they were and if she needed to get rid of her clothing. She did not include a picture, but there is a strong possibility that these worm-like creatures could be carpet beetle larvae.
