Tiny Dark Brown Bugs All Over Home

Asked August 14, 2019, 12:36 AM EDT

I want to know if these bugs are harmful and what their purpose is, as well as how to get rid of them? They appear everywhere. Kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, clothes, blankets. Please help. They do also jump when I try to catch them and aren't very fast, nor do they jump high.

They look like a type of beetle. Possibly a grain beetle feeding on cereal, dried plant products, dog food etc.

Take a few to your extension office for proper identification:
