please help me identify this horrible little critter, I've found several of them in my room, on my mattress, on my wall and on my curtains (as in the picture) they seem to have wings but i've never seen them fly, they are usually between 1-2mm long and have a hard shell. As far as i'm aware they arent biting me but I would quite like to know what they are so i can get rid of them as they are making my skin crawl!
Thanks in advance!
sorry, sent that too soon!
if you google you will come across a lot of pest extermination websites eg http://www.exterminexpestcontrol.com/carpet_beetle.html
the adults feed on pollen in the spring and summer and are not a problem to you, but if they are breeding in your house then the larvae will eat anything animal in origin eg wool carpets, fur and feathers. not sure what to advise you to do - have a look on the net and see what you think.
