Any idea what this is?

My 4 year old son saw this crawling up the wall and I caught it in our bug catcher. I have no idea what it is and am freaking out that it might be something gross/sign of an infestation of something gross :/ Can anybody put my mind at rest (hopefully) or tell me if I need to call out pest control.

    It's a bit blurry, but it looks like a woolly bear, the larva of a carpet beetle.

     

    They will feed on your carpets and textiles. Your own local council website may have the information you need under the pest control section.

     

    Don't get them confused with the caterpillar of the same name.
