Okay so for the past 3 or so months, ive been finding these things around my house on my walls.. I kill them every time I find them.. but im very curious as to what these are.. they have lots of legs it looks like and move very slow and are pretty small. I posted a few pictures.. one of them zoomed in so its not very clear. Any ideas?
CLOSED: I dont know what these are...
they're larvae of some kind of beetle, i think. carpet beetle maybe.

okay.. thank you.. do you know the easiest way to get rid of these? I am not sure where they are coming from. Is there a way to find where they are living?

Control of these beetles can be very difficult as they will feed on so many different things, including accumulations of dead insects. See http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7436.html for some suggestions.
