We left home for two months and when we returned, these bugs were in a bed that had dozens of holes in the sheet; presumably eaten by these bugs. the bugs were under the sheets, on the mattress cover. Are these bed bugs? No sign of them since we washed bedding and destroyed sheets.

Hi Steve65,
These are Carpet Beetle Larvae, common household pests that will feed on a wide array of organic items in the home.  What was the composition of the sheets?

      A lot of cleaning! and by finding and destroying the main source. If you still have them after a few months of good cleaning, unfortunately you might have to hire an exterminator. Good luck!
