    How does a carpet beetle infestation occur?

    A:

    Carpet beetles make their way into a home on flowers and through windows or doors, multiplying when suitable food sources, such as pet fur, wool or silk, are available. This allows the larvae to feed, which creates another batch of eggs. After a few cycles, the home could have an infestation of hundreds or thousands of beetles, depending on the abundance of food.
