Black & Brown Bug

Observed: 5th October 2011 By: Baldrickzcat
Bug 1

Small black creature with brown spots. Have found lots in the house in last two weeks, mostly cling tight to washing. Does anyone know what they are, are they dangerous and how I can persuade them to go elsewhere?

Thank you for your replies. I am sure you are right. I am relieved and will get on the trail of the infested package in the morning.
