Abstract

SKIN and hide beetles, members of the Dermestid beetle family, can cause serious damage to hides and skins.

British authorities are particularly concerned with the incidence of hide beetle infestation in sheepskins imported from Australia.

Local graziers and country abattoirs should pay attention to this problem as damage by hide beetles can greatly reduce the value of all types of skins.
