Carpet Beetle Larva

Dear Esin,
This appears to be a Carpet Beetle Larva from the family Dermestidae, a family with many species that are infamous for infesting stored foods and feeding on many other organic materials including wood and museum specimens.  We do not specialize in extermination advice.
