Please help me identify these......beetles?

Hi,

 

I was hoping somebody could identify this beetle from the picture, i find these quite often in my house along the skirting boards mainly. If clothes are left on the floor you can be pretty sure you will find them hiding under them, I have never seen them fly but they appear to have wings. As yet i havent found any of their larvae but they do sometimes turn up looking slightly different in appearance ie slightly bigger or darker. I hope somebody can help me identify them and maybe even get rid of them as the problem doesnt seem to be going away with just giving the house a good regular clean.

 

Thanks

Carl

    Hello there. This looks like a Golden Spider Beetle Niptus hololeucus. They can be a bit of aproblem around cereal foodstuffs I believe. There is quite a lot of info about them on the interweb.
