These things are driving me crazy. I first noticed a few in the closet, crawling across my comic book boxes and along the wall. Then I later saw them on the floor, under the bed. They are very tiny, very hard to see on dark surfaces, therefore very hard to take a clear photo of without a macro lens. They don't always move making them even harder to see. They look like a pen dot on a piece of paper. I'm thinking it's a type of beetle? Perhaps a type of deathwatch beetle? Though the ones I see online are much bigger. What do I do? How are they staying alive? I'm in Los Angeles, Ca. Please help :(

Here's two images (please click as it's on the right of the dime):
