Have these all around my house…every room. Sometimes they’re alive and sometimes dead by the time I see them. Tried to take pics of front and back but they’re so tiny it may be difficult to see details. They’re always this size…have never seen any larger or smaller.

Carpet Beetle Larva

Hi Stacey,
This is a Carpet Beetle larva and it is a common household pest.  They feed on all types of organic matter around the home, including pet fur and the fibers of wool carpets and upholstery.  Try vacuuming more often as a means of control.
