Click beetle

6870.       About 2cm long. Hid in the dark, moved slow. Tried matching it to different types of insects, but no luck. I’ve never seen one before. Live in a high-up lakefront apartment. Oakville, Ontario. Canada

Number 6870. This appears to be a click beetle (Coleoptera: Elateridae), a harmless accidental ‘visitor.’ They are quite capable of flying, which is how it most likely entered your apartment. Click here for details.
