Caption: Carpet beetle larva, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Carpet beetle (Anthrenus sp. ) larvae are found in the dirtier areas of homes. Their hairs can cause irritation when they come into contact with skin or are inhaled. 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. Magnification: x165 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
