Carpet beetle

6710.      Found on the side of my bed in late October… very small about 5mm. Previously found one on my bed in July. Hoping this is a coincidence and not a bed bug (does not look like other bed bug pictures but I am still concerned). Please help! Toronto, Ontario. Canada

 

Number 6710.  This is a carpet beetle (Coleoptera: Dermestidae); it looks like a black carpet beetle or close relative in the genus Attagenus. Click here for more information including control recommendations.
