6953. Hi, I initially found these black insects under one of our bed sheets, and thought it were signs of bed bugs. I then found them in other places in the house. They look like weevils, i’m hoping you can help confirm. Thanks. Richmond Hill, Ontario. Canada
Number 6953. This is indeed a weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae); specifically, it is a broad-nosed/short-snouted weevil in the subfamily Entiminae. These weevils often enter buildings in search of shelter, but do no harm there. Click here for an example.
