6076 Good day! My name is Hassanal and I would like to ask for help in identifying this insect. We just transferred into a new apartment and this insect is everywhere. It doesn’t bite/sting (well, so far), doesn’t eat the remains of the food and it flies. Location: Gatineau, Quebec – We are living in the basement with large windows. Size: Quarter of an inch. Season: Summer. Weather: Sunny + rainy. Location: Indoor.
Yours truly, Hassanal
