    Hi! My house has been treated twice for bed bugs and I am positive it had gotten rid of them. I also discovered that my house has some carpet beetles.
    Anyways, I keep finding really tiny(0.5mm-1mm), very hard shelled, yellow/creamish round or oval things on my bedroom floor. I cannot squeeze them or pop them. I have attempted to look up carpet beetle eggs but failed to find a decent image. i have never seen bed bug eggs myself either.
    I am wondering if they are dehydrated eggs as I have used a fair amount of DEs....
    Here is a picture of them on duct tape.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you in advance!!!!

    No. They are extremely durable. You can't squeeze or pop them - not carpet beetle eggs, not bed bug eggs, not insect eggs.
