Wood boring beetle - Anobium punctatum

Wood boring beetle - Anobium punctatum
Dakota County, Minnesota, USA
June 12, 2018
Size: ~4mm
Found ~10 in home over the past few weeks. Recently purchased a new oak bed frame made in Wisconsin, but not sure where the actual wood was from. Not sure if these are emerging from the new bed, which is in the same room I'm finding the beetles, or if they have been emerging in the home for a while before I lived there. Haven't been able to find any emergence holes yet to help pinpoint where they are coming from, unfortunately.

I'll add a few more pictures. I still have several specimens if there is some important characteristic I missed in the photos.
