Will Phantom Termiticide/Insecticide kill carpet beetle larvae?

Also how many treatments does a carpet beetle infestation require are the most effective treatment intervals?


Phantom is not labeled to treat carpet beetles.  For indoor carpet beetle control you may want to consider a product such as Nyguard Plus. This product contains an insecticide to kill the roaming adults and an insect growth regulator to stop the harder to kill immature beetles from reaching a reproductive state which in turn will break the cycle of infestation. As an added bonus this product also contains a deodorizer for carpet applications.  You should apply every 2 weeks. It does take quite some time to fully eradicate carpet beetles, how long depends on how bad of an infestation you have and making sure you have found the source.  Please take a few minutes to read our Carpet Beetle article to learn more about eliminating a carpet beetle infestation.
