Need to know what bug is
January 10, 2011 6:39 am
We have A LOT of these bugs in our home. Please could you tell me what it is, and how to get it out of our house??
I think they are more in our house since it started raining so much.
This is a harmless Ground Beetle. It is a beneficial predator. The best way to get it out of the house is to catch it and release it. If you don’t want to handle the Ground Beetle, just cover it with a glass (stemware like a martini glass works perfectly) and then slide a postcard under the glass trapping it for mobile transport.
