    I think they are carpet beetle larvae, but my wife thinks they are bed bugs.

    I am not an expert but they do look like carpet beetles from what I have seen. Wow, that is a lot. where were they all at?

    In our bedroom, but we have no idea how they came in, maybe from a trip, but they weren't in one small area.

    Confirmed not bed bugs. The adult beetle flies in the spring and summer when windows are open and lays her eggs. When we do our K9 inspections we find them in most homes whether they have carpets or not.
