    Found this one just now on the wall near front door.

    Is this bugger causing my bites/bite-like bumps??

    Admittedly I submitted another photo— bad quality one yesterday but not sure if it’s the same type of bug.

    Thank you in advance for your time

    Hi,

    No this is a beetle adult, the larval stage you posted yesterday is most likely to be the cause of the skin traction out of the two. If you read up on Carpet Beetles it may resonate with you.
