    Hi, I keep seeing these little bugs around my house but mainly in the bedrooms. I’m hoping there not bed bugs. They seem to like paper, wood, hiding in toys and dusty places.

    Thanks 😕

    Hi David,

    Thanks for you’re response that’s a massive relief. Do you have any idea what kind of beetle? I seem to have a lot of them. They’re very small no bigger than an apple seed and like being under the beds, walls, window sills, inside toy boxes etc.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Not the clearest of images but I think it’s Hydraena the question is what is attracted them or feeding them in that area. It’s a clean up and tidy pest rather than a chemical treat pest.

    Hi David,

    I managed to get a picture of one of the baby ones, can you take a look I just want to be 100%
    Sure they’re not bed bugs. I’ve included the baby photo an adult one to make sure they’re the same bug. Thank you
