One common type of fabric pest is the carpet beetle. These oval-shaped creatures can be black, orange, brown, yellow, or white and may be mistaken for ladybugs. Some have tufts of hair or stripes. Carpet beetles love natural fibers like bedding, wool, or curtains, but they will eat synthetic materials if nothing else is available. They can do a great deal of damage in a short time, so it’s important to act right away if you see signs of an infestation.
