Larva of a black carpet beetle

7198.          Hi, found this isolated specimen on the 8th floor of my apartment downtown. Just curious as to what it is, thanks. Ouest, Montréal QC. Canada

Number 7198.    This is a larva of a black carpet beetle (Coleoptera: Dermestidae; Attagenus sp.) or close relative. These will feed on a very wide variety of organic materials, and may cause damage to woolen/silk fabrics as well as infesting many dry stored food products.  Carpet Beetle Control Information
