#8 Carpet beetles

It's the larvae which cause damage to silk, wool, fur and textiles.

Look for creamy white grubs with a coating of hair or ladybird like adults with brown and cream spots. They are around all year but more common from April to June. They love dark places under furniture and along skirting boards.
