A couple and I usually don't worry, but three is a crowd and then I do worry!

I can't see the pix real well sorry...it blurs out when blowing it up. It does appear to be some kind of hard shell beetle bug (typically harmless critters)....but which one, not positive and I always like a positive ID since some can be more challenging or cause other issues--like bites.

If you see one more to make the crowd, I suggest bagging them up and take them to your hardware store or garden center for a positive ID.

Once you know what they are, the folks on this site may be able to give you some natural solutions to get rid of them safely.

In the meantime....basic beetle prevention hygiene is to have a dehumidifier in your house, seal up cracks in the foundation and windows and keep debris from around the foundation...like dead leaves and flowers...beetles typically like moisture and debris...so if you get rid of their favorite things, they may just mosey on down to someone else's house to snack and live.

Good luck! Take care!
