    I've looked all over to see if I can find what in the world these things are but nothing I've found looks like these guys. There aren't many at all. I see a handful every now and then. It just has me worried they might be something bad because I can't identify these things.

    They are mostly grey with white stripes. Caterpilly like. Lots of legs. Move as slow as molasses, if they even move.

    Image isnt great for identification, but they look like they could possibly be carpet beetle larvae.

    Carpet beetle, Anthrenus verbasci, larvae.
