Hi there, need some help please, I have those bettles/bugs crawling around in my house everywhere.
The floor is wodden and about 200 years old but those bugs are to big to be wood bugs I guess.
I found some deads ones on the carpet first in niches, then in between my clothes I found a few, I first thought they were giant ticks but
I am really not sure, I bought this house a few years ago and it has been empty for a long time.
They are golden looking, but not a shiney gold. I hope they are no bloodsuckers :S
They are around 4-6 millimers long, thank you very much
Check Your Linens! This is the rather lovely Golden Spider Beetle Niptus hololeucus. It is known for its appetite for fabrics ( particualy oily ones for some reason) You may need to get specialist advice on getting rid of them.
Best wishes and good luck Lewis
Thanks a lot for the help:-)
Gonna search for more of them now hope there aren't though.
Best wishes from Belfast,
