We are dealing with carpet beetles in our home. I found 2 dead larva in between the box spring and mattress. I vacuumed thoroughly. Will a mattress/box spring cover kill carpet beetles should there be ones hiding in the box spring?
We haven't had anyone raise this particular concern before regarding this insect. We are contacting the manufacturer regarding how it holds up against the carpet beetles and will let you know if it will work for your needs. In the mean time you can look over our article on How To Control Carpet Beetles which includes links to the products you can use to treat safely in your home for the insect.
