They are two different types of pantry pests, usually infest old food. Don't forget about old doggie treats. Getting rid of the source and anything they may have infested and thorough cleaning is all that is needed to rid them.
If they are weevils, the best advice I found to get rid of them was on www.ehow.com. Even after I got rid of all the food the darned things were around for a long time. I managed to get rid of them just before I decided to give up and call an exterminator. Ehow saved me a lot of money!
I have had these same bugs. I am not sure of the name but I consider them flour weevels. they come in all flour and if you have flour around long enough, they hatch. If you have some old flour, get rid of it, and clean up well.
I have tiny black bugs in my cupboard, what might they be?

Weevils. I had them once. They hatched out of a bag of old whole wheat flour. It took me three weeks to get rid of them, but I did, just before I was desperate enough to call an exterminator. Check how e-how.com and look up "how to get rid of kitchen weevils." Read everything. I did and I got some great ideas that worked.
