Larva of a carpet beetle

6794.      I have found these on our basement suite walls. They range from 1/8″ to 1/4″ in size. They have way to many legs to count. Kamloops is a very dry climate but maybe being in basement it could be damper. average temperature in basement is 20C. Thanks. Kamloops, BC. Canada
