Black flying Beetles invading my house!

Please can someone help me! I have loads of black beetles running about the house and they have started to fly. They are about 2cm in length and black. They look like a species of Ground beetle but all the info I have read says they don't fly, but mine do! They are a bit clumsy with the flying as I keep hearing them crash landing on the wooden floor! My 3 year old daughter has started collecting them to keep as pets and lets them crawl about on her arms! is this ok? Are they harmless? We were just starting to get used to them when the big ones started flying and they seem to have multiplied. How can we get rid of them or deter them? There are lots of them on the garden wall at night and I guess they are just creeping in open windows/doors. I live in Jersey, Channel Islands. would be so happy if someone can help!
