Hello, I hope to hear back from you as i am a little panicked to exactly what this is. I woke up with some type of bite on my arm and then found this little sucker on my wall and want to know what it is, if its harmful, what happens if it bites stuff like that but i can find that out on my own i just really need to know what this bug is!! Thank you for reading this and i hope to hear from you soon 🙂
This is a Carpet Beetle Larva, a common household pest. To the best of our knowledge, they do not bite, however we have received comments from people connecting Carpet Beetle Larvae to contact dermatitis and to asthma, but those claims have not substantiated by any medical data to our knowledge.
