Caption: Carpet beetle larva. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a carpet beetle larva (Attagenus unicolor) on carpet fibres. Carpet 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 other fabrics, and stored food products. The larvae can survive for two to three years indoors, before hatching into free-living adult beetles.
