Critters in Crevices in Bedroom?


I need help finding out what critters these are. They have been in my vacant room for months. Came back to visit my mother and my room accumulated these critters. I set a trap of sugar water crystal, they took a liking. I've provided pictures very close up and far so you can see the size. Only found one of those brown egg casing. Can anyone help?


They tend to be in bed under fitted sheet and under dirty clothes. As well as in corners of room covered by wood furniture but not termites I assume as wood hasn't been affected.

I am not sure what they are. However, all bugs like food, warmth and water. Spray your room with an insecticide, vacuum weekly, and dont leave soiled clothing and bedding around

They look like Dermaptera- better known as Earwigs insect.

I believe you have one of the cloth eating beetles but not sure which one. They resemble the earwigs but your bug does not have pincers.
You took good pictures but unfortunately, bugs are identified best when they are alive and also from the top. Dead bugs on their backs do not always show all of the bug's 'features' such as how many legs and where are they located as well as other signs.

I would suggest you take your pictures and information to an Ace or True Value Hardware store and ask for help. The employees in these stores are usually very helpful.
You can try washing all of the clothing and other items in this room (as well as anything in closets) but some you will have to throw away as this appears to be a well set in infestation and it would probably be best to remove everything possible from the room before doing any bug removal work.
Do not place anything out of this room into another room/area or you will have these spread without knowing it.
Vacuum everywhere and seal the dirty bag and place outside immediately.
Anything left in this room will probably still have eggs/larvae so wash or throw away everything cloth including curtains.
A mattress may be okay if sprayed thoroughly.

I would not place anything back in the room for several days just to make sure the bugs are gone.
Inspect everything before taking back to room.

You can have a professional exterminator spray the room but they will tell you the same thing - remove everything possible and hot laundry or throw away.

It's hard to tell by the pictures but they resemble a click beetle
