Backyard Bugs . . . Carpet Beetle Larva

Here we have a carpet beetle larva . . . I am thinking it is specifically A. verbasci larva, or the varied carpet beetle (we had an adult some time ago in a previous post).

I had a carpet beetle problem once, but I never saw them when they were in the larva stage. They actually look cute. Was that larva outside when you took the photo?

I don't know about cute, but yes it was found inside.
