I've found these two bugs, the black one (bug #1) on blanket and the second one one the wall. Can they be carpet beetles? I've been finding 1-2 specimen of the second bug every week for about a month.
Thank you very much for your help.
Yes these look like carpet beetles but because of the small size of the images I can't be 100% sure of the id. See http://www.livingwithbugs.com/carpet_beetle.html for some general information and pictures of these beetles. I'm less confident of "bug #1" than the other.
I can answer questions in any area of entomology (study of insects, spiders, mites, ticks, and other terrestrial arthropods). Contact me about home and garden insects, insects that bite and sting, and insects that damage homes such as carpenter ants and termites.
