    We installed climbups to help determine if we have bedbugs or not. Caught a bug in one at head of bed. It almost looks like it could be a baby carpet beetle (we definite have a carpet beetle issue) but doesn’t appear to fly? I think some Pics are of it’s underside as it was turned over.

    Obviously a beetle. Could be moisture and fungus related (latridiid) or from outdoors or one of the flat bark beetles (silvanid).

    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.
