Over the last few weeks I have been finding insects/bugs all over my flat.
In particular in the areas where the oak beams are.
They seem to appear and die rather fast, most are dead when I find them.
Can you help identify them and tell me what I should do?
This is the Wharf Borer, Nacerdes melanura (Oedemeridae), a cosmopolitan species; the larvae live in (usually) salt impregnated timber, such as wharves, groynes, driftwood... but it is common in London> Max Barclay
