    I think it's some sort of beetle, but I don't see the usual markings I've noticed on the carpet beetles I've found. It does seem to have wings, however, which makes me fairly confident that it is not a BB. However, the underside has the horizontal striping which I haven't noticed on carpet beetles before and concerns me. I apologize for posting, but would appreciate expert help in confirming what this is. Found it on my daughter's blanket this morning. That is also not a spot I normally find carpet beetles.

    Not a bed bug.

    What whispers the whisker?

    Thanks, Big Dummy. Good to confirm what I already suspected. Also good to know I was right even if I doubted myself. Appreciate the help.
