Varied Carpet Beetles

(viewed 1243 times)

I found them on my parsley and I didn't know what they were, so I just thought they were pretty and harmless little pollinators. But then I discovered that they're a common household pest and while the beetles feed on pollen, their larvae destroy everything from clothing to carpets (hence the name) to furniture. Huh.

Not a good idea to unintentionally bring them indoors, it seems...
