    Hello,

    We just found the following insect. It looks like a carpet beetle to me but just wanted to ID to make sure:

    Thanks a lot!

    If you look at the shape of the head it's much too large and the shape is smooth and rounded. The head of a bed bug head is quite a bit more angular and smaller in proportion.

    Yes, a denuded carpet beetle larva, most likely a species of Anthrenus.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
