6165 Can you please identify the insects in these photos. They have infested my kitchen and I would like to know how to be rid of them. Thanks.
These appear to be saw-toothed grain beetles, Oryzaephilus surinamensis (Coleoptera: Silvanidae). These beetles and their close cousins merchant grain beetles (O. mercator) are cosmopolitan pests of dry stored food products.
