Identifying a Flying Insect

It looks like a very tiny fly with a round body. Does anyone know what kind of fly this is? I live in Ohio.

Your photo is of an adult carpet beetle and I think your type is sometimes called a "furniture" beetle.

  • It seems your beetle is the least dangerous as it is said the black beetle will destroy almost anything.
  • i do not know how you are treating your house to kill these bugs but one suggestion:
  • Try dusting infested areas with boric acid for a solution that is non-toxic to humans. It kills nearly any insect it comes into contact with, but it does have a bleaching effect and should not be used on dark materials.
  • Here are a couple of links with "treatment" information.
