buffalo carpet beetle definition and meaning

What is a "buffalo carpet beetle"?

A buffalo carpet beetle is a small insect that belongs to the family Dermestidae. It is known for its distinctive pattern of alternating light and dark patches on its wing covers. The buffalo carpet beetle is often found indoors, where it can cause damage to various materials such as carpets, upholstery, and stored food products. The larvae of this beetle are particularly voracious and feed on a wide range of organic matter. Although they can be considered pests, buffalo carpet beetles play an important role in nature by aiding in the decomposition of dead plant and animal matter.
