Hi,
I’m so glad to have found this site!
I found this larva crawling on my pillow. One week earlier one was in my kids bedroom. Trying not to be grossed out! We are in the northwest but recently moved from the northeast. In our old house carpet beetles were coming in from outside attracted to wool carpets. I’ve been meticulous about not spreading them to our new house. This new larva looks a little different but similar and I am trying not to freak out! Is it a beetle? Moth? I found larder beetle and warehouse beetle larva photos and am wondering if it could be one of those?

    Thank you so much for the reply.

    I was afraid of that.
    Any special advice (from anyone out there) for keeping them out of the house? I know cleaning is key. Im so exhausted from finding and getting rid of these guys.

    Thanks again.
