Tiny Black and Orange/Yellow Spotted Bugs in My Clothes

By Monica 1

I have been finding tiny black and yellow/orange spotted bugs in clothes. They are small like a sesame seed, but a little rounder. They appear flat and do not move. I have found 3 in various places. I considered bed bugs, but they do not look like the pictures I have seen and they do not scurry to try to get away. I need help!

I'm fairly sure that what you're describing are ticks. Have a look in Google Images for ticks to confirm.

What you describe is definately Carpet Beetles and they can create severe damage to your home. They eat cloth and fiber.

Carpet beetles are not that small or flat. I'm thinking bed bugs as well. Can you post a pic?
