Just wondering if anyone can tell me what bugs these are ?
They kinda look like some sort of small flying beetles. Pine maybe, but my wood is spruce.
They are in my fire wood pile. They seem to die really easy ( i sprayed the pile with bug killer stuff). just curious to what they are? They seem to like to fly to the light when i turn it on, or the window when the sun hits.
I want to try and get rid of them all.
Their wings are kinda hidden unless i squish them (see pics) or flying.
These beetles are commonly known as bark, engraver, or ambrosia beetles, their larvae feed just under the bark of trees. Some can be very serious timber pests, and one vectors Dutch elm disease. They are so numerous that you can never completely get rid of them.
