scarlet malachite beetle larva

5933  Hi my name is Mike Weir, I found these in a light fixture in Edmonton Alberta.   They are about a centimetre long.
thanks. 

This is a larva of a scarlet malachite beetle, Malachius aeneus (Coleoptera: Melyridae) – see http://tinyurl.com/khegf6s for detailed information. This is not a pest, but simply an accidental intruder. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
