Broad-nosed/short-snouted weevils

6777.    I have a 6 legged dark grey bug in my house. They are about a half inch long, with 2 antennas. I have caught them all over the house, except for the basement. I have checked my pasta, flour, oatmeal, plants. I don’t know where they are coming from. I have caught 12 of them in the last week. Thanks. Chesterville, Ontario
