So one of my friends has these little critters turn up from time to time in her car. They are about 1mm in size and I never see them any other size. I suspect that they are some kind of beatle or roach, because she is often transporting different kinds of plants in her car.

These where fought in south south Florida 5/31/2018

Definitely in Dermestidae. Beetles in the family Dermestidae eat dead animals in one form or another, some flesh, some hides or hair (such as wool carpets).
