I've found about three of these guys in my apartment (carpet) this week, but this one is by far the biggest. Any help with identifying it would be appreciated - are they something I should be concerned about? I have no idea where they came from.

This is a larder beetle, itís in the same family (Dermestidae) as carpet beetles; see http://ento.psu.edu/extension/factsheets/larder-beetle for more detailed information, including control recommendations.
