What bug is this?

Asked September 2, 2019, 3:11 PM EDT

Can someone please tell me what bug this is? I find them most morning on my kitchen floor around the dogs water bowl, and sometimes on the bathroom floor. I've only noticed them the last few weeks but they dont seem to be going. No sign of them on bedding, sofa, or on my dogs... (from the UK) they are very slow moving, do not jump and no signs of bites on anyone in the household

The pictures look like a weevil. They may be feeding on your dog food, rice, wheat, cereal, or other grain in the kitchen. Seal up in air-tight containers any dry food and check potpourri or dried flowers also.


Here is a link to look at some more information to see if any of the descriptions match your bugs.
