What are these bugs?
These bugs have been crawling all over my railings of my house for the last week or so. New ones hatched out today. I’ve never seen them in the 6 years I’ve been living here. What are they, and how can I get rid of them? I’m worried about them biting my pets, or me. Thanks, Emily A.

These look like ground beetles that are harmless. The picture is small so it is hard to tell. I am sending you a website that has some pictures and maybe you can see the kind of beetle that you have. The site is extension.umn.edu and search ground beetles. This site has a lot of information.
