Found Lint Bugs On My Clean Towels

I have been fighting carpet beetles daily vacuuming and spraying with vinegar and using boric powder. But today I found this all over my clean towels! I think they are lint bugs! They actually caused a splinter like cut on my skin when I was removing them. Do I just move? (not an option! kidding) I am too poor to hire big exterminator. Help!

From what I read, they like cotton. You need to wash everything and dry it in a hot dryer. Wash down surfaces with vinegar. You also need patience. It takes time to get rid of them.

Since you have these bugs on your towels, I would suggest you contact your local county extension office and try to identify these bugs and get information on how to remove them.
Here is a link that might help you. Just click on your state and follow directions to find the right agency.

I don't see any bugs. All I see is lint and other debris.


I agree with the previous poster, it's always best to identify the pest before taking any action on it.
