black vine weevil

black vine weevil. another short-snouted/broad-nosed weevil

6026  Hi my name is Kaitlyn and I live in Calgary AB. I’m finding these hard shelled black/grey beetles all over my basement apartment. They aren’t coming from one spot because I’m finding them in every room.

This is another short-snouted/broad-nosed weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae; subfamily Entiminae), the black vine weevil, Otiorhynchus sulcatus (see https://tinyurl.com/pfjs654), is one of the more commonly encountered species indoors. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
