This Broad-nosed Weevil was near my house in Taylorsville. They are quite pretty with their
 gold spots.  Carol Davis, 7-24-2012


Otiorhynchus sulcatus

Otiorhynchus sulcatus overwinter in homes, feed on all parts of plants, are native to Europe and can only converse with
other European weevils ; )  They can be serious pests.  Wikipedia has further information and a list of their host plants.
Below is a photo of its little belly.  Carol Davis 4-30-2015
