New bug in my home

I’ve recently been seeing more and more of a tiny bug in my home. I usually spot them in the kitchen, but I’ve recently spotted a few in the bathroom. Most of the ones I’ve found have been dead and found on plates or in pots in the cupboard. (yuck!). The bug is about 5mm long, lots of legs and a bit fuzzy. I’m located in the Los Angeles Area. I’ve seen this bug for about the past 6 months.
what is it? and how do I discourage it from living in my home?

Dear Fritzy,
Funning the vacuum cleaner more often to remove human and pet hairs should help control your Carpet Beetle population unless you have wool rugs as they will also feed on wool fibers.
