Gibbium psylloides

Spider beetles are not very common in homes. They are more often pests in food warehouses or in flour and grain mills. They are considered to be minor pests of stored grains because they develop slowly and, like many stored food pests, infest foods that are already old, moldy, or damaged. In homes, grains or dry pet food or birdseed that is stored in bulk can be infested.
