GOLDEN SPIDER (NIPTUS HOLOLEUCUS)

The golden Spider Beetle is 3 to 4.5mm long with a globular abdomen covered by silky hairs. It is similar to the Australian Spider Beetle. This insect will migrate and can be found in dark areas often in considerable numbers.

 Biology
The larvae generally feed on woollens and natural silks and will attack textiles although they can survive on any material of natural origin. The eggs will hatch in 11 to 20 days and the larval stage where the damage is carried out may last for up to 250 days. The adults may live as long as 250 days.
