Grain beetle

7294.      Hi there, we keep finding these very small bugs everywhere in the house. Mostly in the bathrooms. We just stayed at a hotel so we were worried they were bed bugs. We find approximately 5 a day, sometimes more. Please help us identify them and any advice on how to get rid of them would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time! Paris, Ontario. Canada
