    Small bugs in the apartment

    Hi!
    2 weeks ago, we started seeing these tiny bugs all over our apartment (which is fairly new) and we have no idea where they come from. They are in random places in kitchen, bathroom and even bedroom. Does anyone know what these are and how we can get rid of them?

    thanks!

    We had some for the full 10 months we were in out flat. We found splatting them with a hand or a foot worked well! Never worked out where they came from but they were mostly kitchen based and ventured out once the lights were off. Fortunately they never increased in number too much, just 2 or 3 a day.

    Normally, depending on a photo, you’ll find they are some type of beetle or weevil that lives in (is imported into your home in) and feeds on flour, rice and other dry grains.

    If you sift through your flour (most likely) then other grains you might find little black specs.
