Help identifying bug (possibly beetle?)(4 posts)
I started noticing these little guys all over my condo floor a couple of days ago. Very difficult to notice at first as they look like specs until they start moving around. I think they might be coming in through the AC unit (I have vents in the ceiling and I think they might be dropping out of them). They are very small (about 2-3 cm long). They don't seem to be concentrating in any particular area and I haven't noticed any bites etc. I haven't noticed them in my clothes or bedding, just patrolling around the floors. They appear to be beetle-like.
Now I can't stop staring at the floor and the little specs and fluffs waiting to see if they move.

Any help would be much appreciated. My main concern is that they are bed-bugs or something coming in through the floor from another condo unit, but I suspect I am just being paranoid. In any case, I'd like to get rid of them, but need help identifying them first.
It has been a very hot and humid week (beginning of August). High 20s, early 30s Celsius.
Out of focus but 95% sure it is a Drugstore Beetle. I am 100% sure it is not a bed bug.
Do drugstore beetles fly? I found one one my ceiling (near a light source) and when I slid a paper under the little guy, he started flying around then went back onto the ceiling in a different place. This would make sense and explain how they are getting around my condo.
Yes they can fly.
