The pattern indicates a carpet beetle. Vacuum and dispose of the contents of the vacuum outside. Then call an exterminator.

Hi,

This is definitely a carpet beetle for sure. They are like moths in that they like to eat fibers. They live where there are items like wool scarves or clothing. Here is the Orkin link that tells all about these little beetles and their love for eating holes in wool and silk and other fibers:

I hope this helps!

Carpet beetle. They come in and lay eggs in the carpet. Vacuum as least once or twice a week to keep them away.

Looks like a carpet beetle. They're harmless, but they do tend to multiply fast. Vacuum all around the house and under the furniture. If there are no dust covers under your couch, flip the couch onto its back and vacuum underneath the couch.

Also vacuum under couch cushions and under beds/mattresses.
