This pattern is consistent with the common carpet beetle. They eat fibers and such. Typically harmless. Vacuum them up, seal cracks in window sills and doors and around the foundation and do a deep cleaning and they should go away.

A few usually are not a worry. If you start to see dozens and dozens, you may need to have a professional look.

Prayers for easy solutions.

Thanks for the helpful comment.

I have noticed after hoovering up that a few more are appearing.

I plan to polyfiller the small cracks on the windowsill and hope this will do the track. Is there any way to discover where they are coming from ?

What I have found is they come in (breed in) from places like bird nests or piles of brush (dead leaves).

When we cleared the perimeter of our house and when the one tree that had nests was empty, we removed that all and that stopped the issue. It also helped some with our ongoing ant problem so that was a bonus!

If you have trees or brush near windows or doors, start there clearing it out. That seems to be the best line of defense!

Usually they come from when you have a lot of dead leaves and other brush around the perimeter of your home or building. Also if there are a lot of bird nests around (either new or abandoned). They like to gather there.

When we cleaned up all the dead leaves and old bird nests form around our entire house it really helped. Plugging up the gaps helps too...when we finally got new windows 10 years ago that made a difference also!

You don't have to kill any of them all you have to do is get a little paper towel wet it go and pick them all up with the wet paper towel they stick to it like a magnet you open up your window put on the window sill they go back outside you want to go further and take them a little further put them by a tree but don't kill him they're so innocent they're just annoying because they're so many it's like a mom dropped off a bus load of kids or something I picked up like 15 today in my windowsill was weird but I just use the paper towel and put them outside they were babies so that's why I said Mom dropped her kid so I hope this helps I wish you a blessed day that's also goes for ants too by the way

This looks like carpet beetle. Carpet beetles like light & found near light fixtures, window sills, etc. IT's actually the carpet beetle larvae that cause the most damage - not the adult carpet beetles, so to rid yourself of the problem, you should look in the dark areas for larvae and clean that out.

You should be concerned about carpet beetles because they can cause lots of damage to not just carpets but also clothes, stores of grain, bed sheets, curtains, and many natural fabrics, such as furniture coverings.

From the photo you are sending this looks like they are on the outside of your home and not inside your home. I see the cracks in the wall of the house.

In cases like this to keep the beetles out of your home lay down some sticky flypaper to stop them from entering in your home.
