I periodically find these very small (1/8th inch) fellows on the walls of my bathroom. Usally in fall/early winter. Usually just one at a time, rarely two or three. I’m thinking some kind of carpet beetle, though we don’t have carpets near the second floor where I find them.
This is a Carpet Beetle Larva, a common household pest that will feed on many organic materials in the home. We will be away from the office during the holidays, so we are postdating your submission to go live to our site at the end of the month.
