    Please help, found this dead in the outer well of one of my climbups. I moved out of my old apartment that had an infestation that appeared to be pretty much limited to the bed about six months ago. I abandoned the bed, threw out a bunch of things, had everything else (that already had no signs of infestation) professionally heat treated and they actually kept most of my things stored at their facility for about 4 months while I was in a temporary place (no issues there). Moved into the new place about two months ago and now I’m terrified they somehow still managed to follow me.
    Sorry I couldn’t get the best photos, I still have it sealed in a bag but I can’t seem to get my phone to focus any better. Shape seems maybe a little off? I hope? Help is appreciated!

    Looks a bit like a biscuit beetle or maybe a black carpet beetle?

    Am I warm Lou?

    I can't tell from the pictures. Not a carpet beetle. Might be one of the fungus beetles. Are the picture settings highest resolution and largest picture size?

    Thanks for all you do here Lou. Real tough to focus in on something so small but I've got some higher-res pics now that hopefully make it a bit easier to tell.

    Need a picture straight down on it. Your pictures are oblique angles so there are shadow areas.

    Sadly I don't think I can get the image any clearer.
