5779 Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. We are finding numerous bugs in our house (15-20 a day) … we would like to know if this is a pest and what steps we should take. Please see attached photo. additional info: very slow moving. 7-8mm long… , stop moving for a long time when we disturb them, VERY hard shell, everywhere in the house on walls, ceilings, floors … not sure if they can fly. thank you very much, Seb.
Like no. 5774, This is another broad-nose/short-snouted weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae; subfamily Entiminae). These weevils often enter buildings in search of shelter, but do no harm there. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
