Identifying a Bug?

The last couple days I have found 2 bugs in my bed and this one on my wall. Anyone know what this is?

It looks like a carpet beetle. Here is a clear image to match with yours:

If you just have a few, suck them up with the vacuum (or if you are like me, walk them out of the house and drop them off at place a far piece away from the house). Then give the house a good cleaning.

If you find bunches (an infestation), you may need to call in a pro, but know chemicals used to treat insects are usually dangerous and should be used in great care with pets and small children and anyone with respiratory issues.

I don't fuss with a few (meaning do nothing but rid and clean). That usually solves the issue. They come looking for food and warmth.

You may want to check around windows and doors and block off any gaps.

The pattern on the bug matches pictures of carpet beetles. Vacuum thoroughly and get an exterminator.

The pattern matches that of a carpet beetle, for sure.
