I didn't really know where to put this ...

A while ago, I found these weird, never seen them before little tiny ovular, brown beetle-looking bugs in my candle drawer in the china cabinet in the dining room. Then, I found the same little bugs in my dill weed. Then, in my pickling spices. Most of my spices are unaffected, though. And I can't imagine how they got in the containers. I tried looking for pictures online to identify, but couldn't find anything that looked right, and gave up from grossness, lol. Does anyone have any idea what they might be?

They could be rice/grain weevils...I had a pantry infestation a few years ago and they were in the dill, paprika, and some grains.

They don't look as long and pointy as weevils. They are very rounded.

I don't know about carpet beetles. I can only look at so many bug images before I go off my dinner, lol! I am not finding any inexplicable holes, and so far have only seen these bugs in candles, pickling spices, and dill weed. Weirdly specific bugs, no? They were all dead in the candles, though. So, I cleaned them all out. But a ton more dead ones appeared. There were live ones in the pickling spices.

I had an infestation of, no joke, "hairy fungus beetles." Google image search to see if they look like yours. Get rid of anything even possibly contaminated, usually grains - rice, old matzah etc... these things were hard to get rid of. Good luck!
