5967 Please, please help me identify these bugs [Beetles ? ] that I am finding in my house. I live North of Toronto in Stouffville Ontario. It is early April and I have been finding them in all different places. Such as walls, floors, countertops etc., I have attached pictures. I should mention that they are slow moving, Again please help as I am grossed out with them. Thank you so much.
This is a broad-nosed/short-snouted weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae; subfamily Entiminae), possibly a black vine weevil, Otiorhynchus sulcatus – see http://tinyurl.com/lgr7rzr for an image. Indoors, these simply are nuisance pests that cause no harm. However, they can be serious pests outdoors, especially in their larval stage – see http://tinyurl.com/monvaej for detailed information.
