Hi, I keep finding these beetles all over the downstairs of my house. They are either in the hallway or lounge and always seem to be laying on their backs dead. Can't say I have seen many that are still alive, but those that are, are still laying on their backs appearing dead.
I have havd them for 2 years know in the summer. I attach a photo to help.
Not sure on this one but I think it may be a type of bee beetle. It is the right time of year for them to be dying off. Are the live ones that you have seen hairier than this specimen?
Thanks, I think you are right as I have just looked them up and I do think they look just like my beetle. The only thing is, I have no household plants and have very little in the garden to, so am surprised that I get so many every year. Do you know what I can do to stop them comming into the house?
