Re: bugged by this buggy. pls help ID!
After some googling, I think that the pest you have there is a kind of beetle called the 'Drugstore Beetle', in the family of beetles called Anobiidae. They generally are fond of dried foodstuffs such as beans such. You may wanna check if you have any toys or beanbags containing beans and/or powder of an organic kind. That squishball may well be the source of this particular infestation. Anyway, the adults dont do much damage other than spreading. It is actually the larvae that does most of the damage.
Next time, take pictures of the front and sides, hard to id insects by their asses!
