these beetles keep on appearing in my flat and seem to be coming in from the window.
at first I was finding about one a day and presumed I was simply finding the same beetle and putting it outside each time.
however, in the past week the numbers have been incresing exponentially. yesterday there were four beetles in the flat and outside one the balcony. today there have been eight.
they are coloured black with brown markings on the back.
That's a Vine Weevil. They live in compost and feed on plant roots. Have you got a window box? Speaking as a gardener, they are best squashed!
thank you. there are bushes below my balcony, i imagine they are congregating there.
