Ground beetle

7278.          This is the first time i have these bugs in the house, in big numbers. They hide under shoes and carpets. They are also all over my yard, grass outside. I’ve looked or vacuumed up at least a hundred so far, but for tye last week they just keep appearing in the house. I have washed and vacuumed everything. No crumbs in the glue to attract them. I have also sprayed the door jambs and i can see that has slowed them down. But i dont know what else to do. What are they and what can I do. I am in Prince Edward Island, farming and water area.

Number 7278.   This is a ground beetle (Coleoptera: Carabidae). Most of these are general predators on other small invertebrates, mainly other insects; some are seed eaters, but none will cause any damage indoors. Ground beetle detailed information
