    Im thinking this is carpet beetle larvae. They were all in my kitchen so I cleaned the crap out of it. Got sprayed. Didn't see any for a couple months and now these suckers are back. I'm stasting to see the beetles too. Do I just keep getting my house sprayed? Do I burn my house to the ground? Lol that was a joke... I don't want these suckers in my house anymore. I'm freaking out mostly because I don't want them in my 1 year old sons room. I need help on where to go from here.

    Not sure it's carpet beetle larva, but it's definitely not bed bug-related.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Hi,

    Confirming 100% not bed bug. Its a larva of something though.

    No one in my small town knows how to treat for this other than spraying once a month. I've contacted the guy with the most bug experience in town (30 years) and he just wants to spray outside once a month and inside once every 2 months. I keep seeing them in the house. I need help. I've even tried contacting people on the east coast to help give direction but no luck with them calling me back. I'm going to go crazy!
