    Got bit a five or six times a couple of weeks ago. Not much since, but it sent me looking for the source. Found a spider but also found these guys on the bottom side of my (old) wooden box spring. Anyone have an idea if they are bed bugs or carpet beetle larvae? Also, these are the only two I found, does it indicate their may be many more?



    Any help would be hugely appreciated.

    Look like black carpet beetle larvae and shed skins. There could be a larger population in the room or apartment.
