CARPET BEETLE LARVAE MONITOR: 1 ea. Set these out where you’ve seen or suspect carpet beetles or other fabric destroying dermestid larvae to be active. These monitors use a strong food based lure and will readily attract and keep dermestids close. The Bait Station comes attached to the “business card size” form seen in this image. Set out both and be sure to record the date you place it out. Inspect at least once a month; once a week is preferred. Change every 30-60 days or sooner if bait chip is depreciated. You can see the bait chip inside the bait station; it’s a small wafer like disc. Store unused Monitors in the refrigerator to insure they stay fresh. Remember, these bait stations are really monitors and not traps meaning they will not “trap” insects like glueboards. However, carpet beetle larvae are slow moving and easy to remove or destroy once you see them. Activity noted in and around these feeding stations means you have an active problem that needs further attention and most likely a thorough treatment of the carpets, furniture and other fabric in the area. Set out one monitor every 250 sq/ft.

Comments on DERMESTID MONITORS

Hi, I’m interested in buying your carpet beetle monitors and traps. Since the monitors have to be stored in the fridge and since we have cats, dogs and small kids, I’m wondering what exactly is the ‘bait’ that’s in the monitors? Is it just a special food? Is it toxic to humans or pets if touched or consumed? I would need to place them under our beds, in the closets and in our pantry cupboards. My second question is for the traps. I think we have both the varied and black carpet beetles, and I see you sell traps for both types. Does this mean one trap wouldn’t work for both species? Also are the traps safe to be around people and pets? Thanks 🙂

The traps are pheromone specific so you will need both types if you suspect you have both species active. Fortunately our cart will let you “mix and match” meaning you can get some of each and still qualify for any quantity discounts that might apply.

As for the dermestid monitors; they use a food based lure and if people or pets eat it, we’ll just digest it as food.
Lastly, pheromone traps are the safest approach once can use for insect control because they present no hazard to people or pets. For more information on just how safe all our products are to use, I suggest you review our safety information posted here:
