Hi, I was hoping you would be able to help me figure out what bug this is. They appeared in my room, specifically on my walls and my bed. Quite a few of these bugs appeared in my room before, at least around half a year ago or so, but then disappeared. They are very tiny like 1 or 2 mm. We are currently in the Winter season, heading into Spring, though it has been feeling like Summer this week.

Varied Carpet Beetle

Dear Concerned Evelyn,
This is a Varied Carpet Beetle, a common household pest, and your letter is the third we opened today for a Varied Carpet Beetle identification, so we are posting your letter to assist folks visiting our site who are also troubled by Carpet Beetles.  Adult Carpet Beetles feed on pollen, but larvae will eat a wide variety of organic items in the home.

    I’ve been seeing these on my bed as well and i’m wondering if anyone knows how to get rid of them. I’ve seen 4 in about 2 weeks, and am paranoid about sleeping on my bed now because of them.
