5923 Hi. I have a ton of these beetle like bugs hanging around inside my house around the windows. What are they?
This is a special kind of leaf beetle (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) in the subfamily Bruchinae. Often called pea or bean weevils, the larvae of several species will infest seeds (primarily those of legumes), both dry stored ones or still in the field. If you have any stored seeds, including bird seed, check for signs of infestation and dispose of anything found to be infested. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
