Search for the source. A heavier concentration of carpet beetles, cast skins, or fecal pellets is a good indication that a certain location is the primary source of the infestation.
Carpet beetles are drawn to fabric. They can be found in the carpet, especially if that carpeting is in a closet or other dark location, but they are also drawn to clothing, upholstered furniture, and items made of fur or feathers. Non-fabric items that attract carpet beetles include food cabinets, dog food, fresh flowers, and paint brushes. Also check dark, undisturbed locations like air ducts, baseboards, and attics.
