Would You Happen To Know Where To Find Carpet Beetles? 

Carpet beetles are usually found throughout the edges of rugs and carpets. They can also thrive on lint, hair, and debris growing under baseboards and inside floor ducts and vents. Carpet beetles are thrifty. The insects move into places where other things have lived. Examples are wall voids, old rodent bait in attics and crawl spaces, and wasp or hornet nests.

Indeed, a graveyard is suitable, too; carpet beetles don’t mind places cluttered with dead bugs and spiders. From May to July, the beetles go outdoors to stop and smell the flowers, enjoy pollen and nectar and mate—the typical carpet beetle, insect, bird nests outside, and even the dead bird.
