Caption: Carpet beetle larva. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a carpet beetle (Anthrenus sp.) larva amongst the fibres of a wool carpet. These larvae 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. They are covered in hairs (setae) that can cause irritation to humans on contact with skin or if inhaled. Magnification: x50 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
