Hi Charles,
We thought this was a species of Carpet Beetle, and we have seen them on our squash blossoms. We checked with Eric Eaton and here is his response. “Ah, a carpet beetle in the genus Anthrenus! Please keep it away from my insect collection:-) You are correct that, outdoors, many species in the genus pollinate flowers in their search for pollen to eat. Eric” The larvae are destructive to collections and natural fibers.

    I keep finding these in my curtains… They really freaked me out until I read this. Bugs that don’t bite don’t bother me much. Except ants. Because creepypasta.
