I just recently moved in to a new apartment and since the first day I’ve been finding these little bugs. I have no idea what they are. I find them mainly in the living room and by the kitchen and upstairs window. Usually they are dead, or playing dead. I think they can fly by I haven’t seen them do it. But I am really tired of finding them. Is there any way to get rid of them naturally?

Dear bugged out,
This is some species of Leaf Beetle, and we believe the Elm Leaf Beetle,
Xanthogaleruca luteola, which is pictured on BugGuide is a close match and distinct possibility.  According to BugGuide:  “Native to w. Palaearctic(4), adventive and now widespread in N. America (more common in sw US).”
