(Mississauga, ON) Black bug with 2 antennas and 6 legs. It moves very slowly. Have seen a few in my house in last month.
Would need more photos of various angles of the weevil to know better, but it is one of the broad-nosed weevils. Some species of weevils migrate into homes in the summer and fall.
There are several weevils that can come into homes either attracted to lights or because of the plantings nearby, or looking for a hibernation spot (much like the Asian lady beetles do). It is probably one of the Otiorhynchus sp of weevil.
For control it is best to caulk cracks and snug-fitting doors and windows to prevent weevils from entering homes. Physical removal is best with a vacuum sweeper. Chemical control usually is not necessary in the house. These are a household nuisance not a pest indoors.
This genus of weevils do feed on plants in the garden…the strawberry root weevil can be a pest of strawberries; lilac root weevil larvae feeds on lilac roots; and the black vine weevil adult feeds on rhododendrons around the house while the larvae feed on the roots.
These weevils are found over most of North America. With most of the species only having females…males are only found in Europe.
These weevils do not bite or sting.
