Hi everyone, I've just joined this site because I've found some odd little beetles in my house recently. I had a couple in the bathroom the other day but the dog's just found one in the kitchen and then I found another one on her. They appear black to the naked eye, but I notice they look a bit more brown and stripey in the photos. The body is about 1/2 centimitre, not counting the head.
I would be grateful for any help.
it looks very much like a vine Weevil Otiorhynchus sulcatus
