Bugs in workshop



I hope someone can help.


I have a bug problem in my workshop. It's a brick room, with wooden floors, and concrete underneath.


The bugs appear on the floor in the corner near the outside door. There are around 50 of them every morning. I brush them outside, but sure enough, the next morning there are another 50.




They're 3mm long, black, with wings. They do not move (some of them on closer inspection are upside-down, wriggling). However, they can fly, as some of them make their way onto shelves.


They are completely resistant to the all-purpose insecticide powder I put down.


Any idea what they are?


Many thanks!

    The image is too lousy (hope you don't mind me being straight) to tell what is is with any certainty, but they most probably belong in Curculionidae. I won't risk my already bad reputation by going further than family, but Sitophilus sp. perhaps if I'm allowed a free guess?
