We found this bug on a couch cusion. It was mid day and in a bight and sunny room. It had crab or long scorpion-like claws. It looked like it was feeding on stuff too small for us to see. The claws are longer then they look in the image. It appears to be brownish with a reddish stripe up the middle of its back. We are also fighting carpet beetles in our house. If someone knows what it is, please let us know.
