I keep finding these little black bugs on the kitchen floor. I just killed about 10 of them. They're all spread out. I can't see where they are coming in from. They're about the size of ants. I've tore through my pantry thinking they're eating something in there but I can't seem to find any in there. Please help.

Looks like one of the grain weevils in genus Sitophilus - larvae usually develop within grain seeds - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sitophilus

Someone else will come along and give you more specifics, but it is some species of weevil.

Sorry Flap, didn't mean to cross post.

Thanks so much for the help. Looked where we stored some grains in another area of the kitchen and found where they were all hiding.
