Hi hope you can help identify a few bug in the house picture below.
we mainly find them in the bathroom / Toilet ... 6-7 in the bedroom.
could you help to identify for us please ?.. (and how to stop them)
Looks to me like a mealworm beetle (Tenebrio molitor)
They come from mealworms which usually are fed to lizards or birds.
Hi Thanks for your answer .. the Tenebrio molitor (Larvae typically measure about 2.5 cm or more, whereas adults are generally between 1.25 and 1.8 cm in length.)
The photo of the one we have are 3-4mm in lenght and all are same size, so the Tenebrio molitor look a bit big
This is Tribolium castaneum or a very similar species (T. confusus, etc.) Same family as Tenebrio molitor.
