Caption: Wardrobe beetle larva. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a wardrobe beetle larva (Attagenus fasciatus). Wardrobe beetle larvae are found in the dirtier areas of homes. Because of their hairy appearance they are often known as 'woolly bears'. They are a significant pest, feeding on animal materials including fur, feathers, hair, leather and wool, and stored food products. They can cause considerable damage to museum specimens.
