Cleaned underneath my stove and found a bunch of these little guys. I believe they have already hatched. Can you please tell me what they are? Thank you

Carpet Beetle Larvae

Dear Cherry,
Hard to reach spots including under the stove and refrigerator, are likely places to find Carpet Beetle larvae, common household intruders that will feed on pet hair, food scraps and other organic material that falls to the floor in the kitchen.

What is this?! I live in Kansas City MO! I found this bug on my carpet floor and I’ve done tons of research on google images but I still can’t find out what this is! It’s small with a hard round back! Help!

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.

I sent these photos to an exterminator, and he told me it’s a spider. But it looks to me like the bug has 6 legs and 2 antennae! Hoping it’s not a bedbug!
