I was wondering what this bug is. It’s got a hard body it’s mostly black with a tan belt within the belt each side has 3 black spots. I think I might have seen it fly but I’m not sure on that one. I have found 3 landing on my bed and one in my sponge in the kitchen. I have a 5 month old and am wondering if I need to worry or if it’s just a nuisance bug. I live in Idaho if that helps any.

  1. I just discovers these bugs.
    They were just crawling in the floor.
    It says they get in food. I never saw one in food.
