broad-nose/short-snouted weevil

5865    Hi! I am hoping someone can identify this bug for me in Edmonton,  Alberta.    Not to lead the answer but a friend has bedbugs and just thought I would take a good look in my house and found this in a plastic bin under my bed.  Thanks for your help with this!   Rebecca

This is a broad-nose/short-snouted weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae; subfamily Entiminae). These weevils often enter buildings in search of shelter, but do no harm there. See nos. 5826, 5781, 5779, and 5774 for other examples. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
