We recommend that you get a proper identification of the beetle. It would be extremely odd to have carpet beetles in your car and in your office because they must have a food source that is of animal origin to survive and most cars and business offices do not have such a source. You should collect several samples of the insect and contact your local cooperative extension office to get an insect identification. Starting a treatment program without knowing exactly what you are dealing with is likely to lead to a treatment failure. Once you have a proper identification we would be happy to help advise you of the correct treatment.
