BUG ID Please [a: beetles; suspected grain or pantry beetles](6 posts)
It's a beetle. NOT a bed bug.
What kind of beetle might it be? I think I am having skin reactions to them once in a while... and what do you do to get rid of these in an apartment?
I can't see them very well, but it looks like something I get. It will be interesting to see what the entomologists say.
I am on a mobile so I cannot be certain, but they look like sawtoothed grain beetles.
I would not expect this type of beetle to cause any skin reactions or harm.
To get rid of them:
> First, this dependes on what it is EXACTLY and we don't know this by these photos.
> If it is a grain or pantry type pest beetle then do this:
* Inspect your pantry for any foodstuffs that may be infested.
* Remove all infested foods, if any.
* Inspect all cracks & crevices.
* Vacuum thoroughly.
* Treat and/or seal all cracks & crevices.
* Follow up inspect.
> If it's not a grain type beetle pest, you will need to inspect and check the areas from which this type of beetle may be coming from.
Hope this helps ! paul b.
