Hello, I live in Saskatchewan, Canada and have found 40-50 beetles in my house in the past two weeks. They are everywhere … upstairs, downstairs, bathrooms, kitchen, bedrooms, etc, etc. They are approximately 1/4 inch (5-6 mm) in length and solid black. We’ve never seen them fly and believe that they don’t have wings. I’ve included pictures. I found one larva. It was redish-brown and appeared striped (very similar to that of a larder beetle). Can you help us identify them, tell us why they’re moving in, and how to get rid of them. Thank you so much for any help you can offer.
You have one of the Grain Weevils. This is just one type of Pantry Beetle. Grain Weevils infest stored grain products. Weevils belong to the Family Curculionidae.
