probably Drugstore Beetle

Hi Pat,
Numerous small beetles infest stored food products, and the Kendall Research website pictures many of them.  Your photo is not ideal for conclusive identification, but we believe this is most probably a Drugstore Beetle, Stegobium paniceum.  The West Virginia University extension website has a good pdf document on the Drugstore Beetle, and you may also view BugGuide for more photos and descriptions.

Thank you for your help. I think you are correct and as soon as I can further inspect a bug I will know for sure. Thanks again. Pat
