Dermestidae beetle

5949  This was found walking across my bed in Toronto, Ontario.

This is a beetle in the family Dermestidae (carpet/larder/hide/skin beetles and relatives), but this image is not clear enough for a more specific identification. You should check all your food storage areas as well as any organic fabrics (wool, silk, those trimmed with fur or feathers, etc.) in long-term storage and any wool rugs for signs of insect infestation.  See http://tinyurl.com/zl9w25c elsewhere on this site for some control recommendations.
