Hi! I found two bugs one at a time each hanging out in clean unused disposable diapers next to my bed. I have never seen them before. The diapers are organic plant based so I was wondering if that’s why I found them there? They are very small like half of a grain of rice. They look either fuzzy or lots of legs. What is this bug, is it dangerous?
Signature: Thank you!
This is a Carpet Beetle Larva, a common household pest that feeds on organic animal fibers like wool, feathers, shed pet hair and shed human hair. We don’t know why it they are being attracted to your organic plant based diapers. Carpet Beetle Larvae are a nuisance in the home, but they are not directly dangerous to humans.
