Help, this thing was on the wall, I live in Oakland gardens Queens NY and I found it. It has one long nostril or idk what that is. It has six legs and little suckered freaked me out when I learned it could fly! I don’t want to kill it if it’s not harmful. I’d much rather let it go, but I need to know if it’s harmful or not. Please get back to me soon!

Dear Freaked out human,
Does the Oakland Gardens have many of its namesake oak trees nearby?  This is an Acorn Weevil and we believe it inadvertently entered your home.
