    Hi

     

    it's a carpet beetle larva.

     

    Regular cleaning of spilled food or lint will eliminate any sites for potential breeding. Susceptible items like food, woolens and furs should be stored in an insect proof container. If an infestation is suspected then the source of the problem must be removed and destroyed to further limit any possibility of spreading.
