Can Gentrol IGR Aerosol be used to help disrupt the life cycle of carpet beetles?

Can I use this product to disrupt the life cycle of carpet beetles? I have carpet beetle larvae coming out of baseboards and under carpets. These larvae are 2nd-generation from an adult carpet beetle infestation I had several months ago. So I want to make sure I break their life cycle. Also, could I combine Gentrol with other products such as Tri-Die, Cy-Kick, or D-Force?


Gentrol IGR Aerosol is labeled dermestid beetles and carpet beetles are a type of dermestid. You can and should use Gentrol IGR aerosol with an insecticide spray to help eliminate the infestation. When dealing with carpet beetles it is very important to find and remove the source of the beetles to get rid of them for good. To learn more about carpet beetle elimination please take a few minutes to read our article : Carpet Beetle Pest Control
