6928. In Calgary, AB, It seems every year in June when the weather is warm and rainy, I keep finding this little black beetle crawling up walls or coming out from under baseboards in my bathroom, basement and kitchen/near the back door. The ones in the basement are like this little guy in the picture but I also find bigger light brown ones.
The black ones are slightly smaller than a ladybug. What is it, why do they keep coming back year after year and how do I eliminate them??? Calgary, AB. Canada
Number 6928. This is a broad-nosed/short-snouted weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae; subfamily Entiminae). These weevils often enter buildings in search of shelter, but do no harm there. You really cannot eliminate them short of hermetically sealing your house. Click here for an example.
