IDestroyers of Carpets.
Careful house keepers are often dismay
ed at the wholesale destruction which thel
best carpets have suffered, through the do
predations of some insect posts, and ai
usual the injury will be attributed to th
well-known domestic scourge, the clothei
imoth. But it may be of interest to som(
to know that an insect of quite a d ffereal
order, and far more destructive, is fostere
unwittingly beneath our carpets. If th<i
windows of infested rooms be careflilly ex
amined during the winter and spring, v
number of small beetles may often be found
not exceeding one-eighth of an inch Ir
length, and of an oval convex form. Thest
Insects are beautiful objects, being jel
black, variegated with scarlet, and whitt
markings. If examined through a lon
power microscope these markings are seem
to be composed of inhuate elongated scalPE
various colors, with which the body 1
coiipletely covered as with a coat-of-mail.
''his is the insect, which in the larval state
plays such havoc with the carpets. It
discovery im this country is of recent date,
and it has probably beed imported fron
Europe, where it has long been known and
dreaded for its destructiveness. Owners
of carpets who have not suffered from thh
source have reast.n to congtatulite them.
selves and should be vigilant; making fro
quent examinations during the summer
months, at which time the insect is in the
larval state and commits it ravages while
Its presence is often unsuspected. The
larva measure about three-sixteenths of an
inch in length, in mature spechiens, and
are clothed with shortly bristly hairs, some.
what longer at the sides wherw they form
small turts, and are terminated at the
hinder end by a tuft of longer hair, making
them appear nearly three-eights of an inch
long. When they are disturbed they are
active and glide very quickly away into
some crevice of the floor or beneath the
washloard. It is not very consoling to
know that this pest is rapidly increasing.
while no effectual means for Its destruction
has yet been discovered, although benzine,
kerosene and 'insect powder has been re
ported beneficial. A curious fact concern
