Banded black carpet beetle

7263.           Hi, I found this bug inside the apartment we’ve just moved in. This is the second one, noticed in 4 days. I found them both in the living room, crawling on floor. Do I have to be scared, as I have 2 children playing daily on the floor. Thank you! Edmonton, Alberta. Canada

Number 7263. This appears to be a banded black carpet beetle, Attagenus fasciatus (Coleoptera: Dermestidae). See Banded black carpet beetle image , and carpet beetle control recommendations
