I have been spraying outside perimeter with home defense and placed boric acid tablets in basement and attic.
It sounds like the beetles were either re-introduced to the home or there was some larvae that are just now emerging. You can likely do another spray with the Suspend and Gentrol and get control over what is left. While you could try the beetle pheromone traps the vacuuming, cleaning and spraying of the residual insecticides will be the most effect. For further tips on carpet beetle control you can refer to our articles "Varied Carpet Beetle Identification and Biology" and "How To Get Rid of Carpet Beetles".
