Hello! We keep finding these small bugs on our carpet, in our bedroom and I haven’t been able to identify it. It has two-tone body, almost black and yellow, very small, hard shell. I have attached pictures. I hoping these aren’t bed bugs, they dont look like them based on the pictures i’ve seen.

Varied Carpet Beetle

Hi Rachelle,
This is the third identification request for the Varied Carpet Beetle we are posting this morning.  The larvae can damage wool rugs and other organic materials found in the home and they also do significant damage to museum collections.  They are cosmopolitan in distribution.
