Very slow moving looks like legs are "designed" to cling on, like head lice.

Carpet Beetle

I thought about that, but these are really small. Looks very similar though, certainly same type of legs and head. Wonder if these are just very immature lava.

Immature larvae

yes the immature larvae are really small, a real nuisance for anyone with an insect collection as they can creep in through the tiniest of cracks and eat the insect specimens.
