    Recently there have been some mysterious bugs in my room. 3 have been found on the bed (on different days); one dead at night; the other two in the daytime.
    The others were in two different window sills floating dead in glasses of water.
    The bugs are so small and one appears to have a brown back with what look like dots on the back?
    Sort of like a lady bug, but obviously not a lady bug.
    The others look to be a dark brown/black and I can't see any antennae, but that could be due to the fact I smashed these when I saw them. Legs are hard to see, too due to the small size of these bugs.
    From what I've seen on the net, these don't really look like bbs, but I could be wrong???
    Do bbs ever look dark or spotted?
    From what I could tell only one had the dot-like appearance.
    PLEASE HELP!
    What could these bugs on my bed be?
    They are not fleas.
    Thanks.

    Also, are bbs ever dark in color (brown/black) and very small?
    The one was a brown with what looked like spots on it. All the same size.

    Pictures are not that great for a 100% positive ID. Look up pictures on the net of Warehouse Beetles, that could be what I make of them.

    Here's a pic of them floating in the glass. Do bbs ever appear that dark in color? Are warehouse beetles bigger or smaller than bbs??

    I confirm KQ identification... Dermestid beetles, probably Trogoderma sp.

    Get pictures. Around a window could be anything. Psocids or jumping spiders are real common there.
