I saw several of these very small bugs around the house yesterday (outside) and my first discovery was when one bit me on the arm. This was shot at 1:1 and still considerably cropped so that gives you an idea of how really small these are. Those sharp looking barbs are unique. Does anyone know what these are called?

Kurt,

Someone on another forum identified it for me as the larva of the Asian lady beetle. I suppose this beetle is also called the ladybird. Not sure right now but I'm going to read up on it when I have more time. Thanks for the ID.

Here it's full of them at this time of the year. Looks like a ladybug larva indeed.
