Susey, i know nothing about carpet beetles, but on the box of borax i have it says it will not harm anything that is not damaged by water. i use it once a week on my hair (mixed with shampoo it removes build up of hair products) and have used it on delicate clothing (to remove persistant stains), so it shouldn't do any harm to you, your mattress, or your cats., clarification of answer by emjay-ga on 10 aug 2003 12:06 pdt hi elaine, keeping the synthetic rug free of hair and lint would certainly help to starve any remaining insects, but keep in mind that carpet beetles could be nesting and feeding in other areas (corners, baseboards, food products, etc.).
I hoovered under my blanket chest today ( first time in a while:o ) and there's lots of little white oval case type things (empty, about 1-2mm wide, 6-7mm long), along with a lovely hole in my carpet.
