Grain beetle

6750.      Hi, I have been finding these black looking insects in my home by the washroom, in my closet and now bedroom. I am concerned since I’ve been seeing more of them and want to know how I can get rid of them. Please let me know what they are? And if I should be worried? Thank you, Sylvia.

Number 6750.  This looks like a grain beetle in the genus Oryzaephilus (saw-toothed and merchant grain beetles). These can infest a wide variety of dry stored food products. Click here for more detailed information.
