Are these bed bugs?
December 12, 2009
I’m living in Sydney Australia in an apartment and in the last month (summer just started) my place has become infested with these bugs. They seem to have pointy and long mouth parts. They climb the walls, fall, and then get stuck in the carpets… I have attached 2 pics using a microscope (4X magnification). One is a dead bug and the other is immersed in oil to get it to stay still. They are both 0.2 cm long. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
This is a Weevil, and we suspect it may be infesting some food product in the pantry, possibly rice.
Thank you so much for your quick reply. I have found the culprit. A 5 kilo bag of wild bird seed in the closet.
