    Hello All,
    I caught this in a climb up and have no idea what it is. Is this have anything to do with bed bugs or carpet beetles? Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't believe it's a dermestid beetle at all. The images are very low resolution and not largest picture size. This make ID almost impossible. The setting on the phone is like Snapchat but this setting is no good for an identification. You also have to get as close as possible to the insect while still maintaining focus.
