Dear Esin,
This appears to be a Carpet Beetle Larva from the family Dermestidae, a family with many species that are infamous for infesting stored foods and feeding on many other organic materials including wood and museum specimens.  We do not specialize in extermination advice.

  1. I have 2 pictures of a beetle? that I found on my blanket. It’s about the size of a dime , but a bit smaller. The undersid of it is off white. It freaked me out because bugs and I don’t get along. I live in cleveland ohio. can I send you a picture of it so you can identify it, Please!
