Can you post a picture of the beetles? It sounds like a carpet beetle (see http://www.livingwithbugs.com/carpet_beetle.html
) but I'd like to see a photo to be certain.

No need to treat with insecticides for carpet beetles. The beetles are very common and not harmful. General cleaning is usually enough. Check areas where dry foods are stored including dry pet food. See the page cited above for more information about control.
