The beetles are small, measuring 1.5 to 4mm in length. The body is strongly convex like the ladybird beetle & the characteristic of this beetle is its pattern of yellow, black, and whitish scales on the body.
The females lay between 20 to 100 eggs during spring and early summer. They lay their eggs on furs, woolens, and any dried materials of animal origin.
When the larvae hatch out, they are hairy and brown with three bunches of golden hairs on the abdomen. They reach a length of 4-5mm. They tend to avoid the light and, when disturbed, curl up into a ball.
Depending on the temperature, the eggs hatch between 10 to 35 days. The larvae can last at least a year on the quality of the food supply. The adult beetle lives from 7-41 days.
The adults appear in April, May, and June, and their resulting larvae hibernate during the following winter, pupating during the latter part of February and March.
When emerging, beetles seek the light and usually fly to the windows. They fly to light-coloured flowers, where they feed on nectar and pollen. After mating, the females enter houses during late summer and autumn and lay their eggs in birds’ nests in roof voids and other suitable places. The larvae feed on feathers and wool soiled with excrement.
