Can someone help me identify an insect?

I just caught this bug under a plastic CD spindle and I'm worried it might be some variety of roach. Anyone know what this is?

It's some kind of weevil. They are related to beetles.

As an older person, I really appreciate you informing me of the new strains...So much has changed and mutated since I was young. I remember when the Dead Sea was just 'not feeling well'....

Looks like a water bug at first or maybe a wood roach

[@428650,DangerDingus] It does look fairly water bug like.

[@6579,BlueMetalChick] I see those sometimes in the bakery during the summer. Thankfully it's not a roach, like the one that survived being baked into a muffin 😬

Nah that's not a roach, looks like some kind of weevil or maybe those funny bugs you see sometimes darting across the water.

Hm was it in the water? If so looks like a Waterbug. If not it looks like a roach haha

[@376270,TimingQuasars] It was crawling across the coffee table in my living room.

I think it got on my backpack when I was out earlier tonight. The pack was leaning against the table.

[@6579,BlueMetalChick] yah i dont think you should worry kill that one or throw it far away from you so they dont mate and make more . I think if theres a few showing up kill those before they multiply. If theres so rare then it is not a infestation.. Kill any single roaches like that one before they multiply untill you don't see anymore. it can work preventative measures haha n i think you should be good. Roaches are a type of beetle i think but i could be wrong. it could have hitchhiked on you like you said. Hopefully The case.

[@6579,BlueMetalChick] compared to city dilemmas like bed-bugs, -nature bugs are a huge relief. Ticks can be problematic but, we wouldn't be seeing those that easy!

I don't think it's a roach. It looks like the friendlies I have around here that just appreciate music. What are you playing?

[@6579,BlueMetalChick] i like this one by him called cross town traffic. I like all his songs tbh but some i like more than others. I havnt heard evry song tho. His music makes me wanna get high haha

atlantic59 · 61-69, M
But I'm thrilled that you allow them in your bio-diversity outdoor platform. I'm a fan of your philosophy

[@412438,ExtremeNext] You are and thanks!
atlantic59 · 61-69, M
