Can the carpet beetle be harmful to humans?
I read on the internet that a carpet beetle larvae was found in a woman's stomach. What happens if we accidentally consume them or their eggs in our food or on plates cutlery etc. I have a carpet beetle problem at home and also have a baby so I am worried to distraction about the harm they could do to us. On the other hand the idea of using insecticides in the home could also be a problem for me with a newborn.
