I recently moved into a new condo and for the past 2 weeks or so, since it really started to warm up (I live in Vermont), I have been seeing 2-8 of these beetles on my ceilings (rarely wall or floor) in my living room. I have been keeping my windows locked shut as I was assuming they were getting in that way. I almost never see them in the morning, mostly afternoon/evening. I vacuum them up, but it seems each day I have another handful on the ceilings to clean up. Any idea what they are or how to get rid of them?

The picture attached is a close up, they are only about the size of a fingertip, have small heads, 6 legs, long bodies and antennas, and can fly.
