Help! we just had a bunch of nasty little critters show up in my parent’s living room! Can you help explain what they might be? And what to do with them?

Dear Miss R,
Your parents have a Carpet Beetle Larvae problem. These are common household pests that will eat a wide variety of organic materials in the home, including wool fibers. When rugs and upholstery fabric contained wool, Carpet Beetles were a serious problem. Now more often than not, they feed on shed pet hair and human hair around the home. Vacuuming more often might help relieve the problem.
