7413. Hi, as previously stated I’m from Calgary AB. I sent in a different picture of these guys wandering around the house last October (file #7406). Your analysis was a Darkling beetle that infects dry stored goods. On that advice I completely cleared and checked all food, shelves & drawers in my pantry at that time and did not find a single one, however there were still some lingering around the house. Yesterday I found this lone fellow, hope this is a clearer picture for you to re-examine and re-assess and give provide me your findings. Thanks
Number 7413. This definitely is a darkling beetle (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae); most likely in the genus Tenebrio. Only a few species in this family can be considered pests; the vast majority do no harm. See Darkling beetle detailed information .
