Carpet Beetle Larva

Dear Irena,
This is a Carpet Beetle larva, a common cosmopolitan pest found in homes.  They will feed on many organic materials found in the home, including shed pet hair and wool rugs.  We are postdating your submission to go live to our site at the end of the month when we are away for the holidays.
