Hi, I found a few hundred in my basement fairly near each other. They are small about 3-8 millimeters each, under a loop they have a rounded body, but the curious thing is the ”tube” coming from the head. They also have wings. Any help on what it is and how to prevent more from appearing besides cleaning very frequently. Thanks for any help.

Grain Weevil

Dear Outrunner,
You have an infestation of Grain Weevils.  You should check stored grain products in your basement, like bargain quantities of bird seed, pet food or rice to track down the source of the infestation.
