5994 Hey just wondering what kind of beetle this is. Found it under the bathroom sink with about 15 more. Lots of sawdust and wood around them. I looked on the site to see if it was posted and couldn’t find one like it.
This is a larder beetle, Dermestes lardarius (Coleoptera: Dermestidae), a peridomestic pest species. See http://tinyurl.com/nw92wz for more detailed information, including control recommendations.
