Bathroom Bugs Identification

darkling beetle April 12, 2017/in Pest Identification /by Pest Control Canada5968 Dear Sirs,  My name is Mellissa and I live in Jamaica. A cemetery is nearby and the house is in between two open lots with mostly shrubs. Our yard has grass and some fruit trees. We also use soak-away pits/cesspools that allow water to absorbed into the earth. There is also a shed in the back yard that was once a haven for cockroaches. Is is sunny all year round here with rainy and dry seasons – the bugs are here irrespective. These bugs/beetles come out in the night through small spaces in our windows, in the daytime there in minimal movement and sometimes they appear dead when they are not. They are about a quarter of an inch long, black, have six legs and a set of antlers/feelers. They have a semi-hard exoskeleton and if you step on one you can hear it crack. They are quite a pest and I would like to know what they are and what they exist to do. Please let me know if you need any further information.   Thank you This might be a darkling beetle (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), but I cannot see enough detail (particularly its tarsal segments) to be certain. Although these may be nuisances, at least it does not appear to be any of the common pest species in that family. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.

11 / 12 Pill Bugs You might know this ball of a bug by its nickname, the “roly poly.” Pill bugs are related to lobsters, and actually breathe through gills under their armor-like body. If they dry out, they can’t breathe, so they stay close to wet spots in your home. Check for them under the bathroom sink, in your crawl space or basement, or in the potted plants. Swipe to advance

terrestrial crustacean (sow bug) May 23, 2017/in Pest Identification /by Pest Control Canada5998   Hello!    My name is Travis, and I live in southern Ontario.  We’ve seen a few of these guys in our master bathroom in the past few days and would love an identification.  I hope the photo is clear enough.  My best guess is some kind of sowbug?     They are small (maybe as long as my fingernail, <1cm).  It’s just the beginning of spring and it’s starting to get warm.    I hope I’ve given adequate info.  Thanks!  Travis This is a terrestrial crustacean in the order Isopoda, and sowbug is one of the common names applied to these creatures. They primarily are scavengers on bits of decomposing organic matter, but some species have been known to damage very tender plant parts. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
