Ground Beetle

Scarites Vicinus

Notes:

Common black ground beetles are attracted to light, and for this reason they may accidentally make their way into the house since they are active at night. While this may seem like an annoyance at the time, common black ground beetles are actually quite beneficial to the home and garden.
