Broad-nosed/short-snouted weevil

7182.     Hello, we found a few of these bugs in our home on the walls. We would appreciate it if you could identify the insects, explain if they are dangerous and how we can ensure that they will not reappear. We do not know where they are coming from. Thank you, RICHMOND HILL, ON Canada

Number 7182. 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. Short of hermetically sealing your home, there simply is no way to ensure that you will not receive more visitations.
