Please help me ID this pest that I believe came in with a large family of friends in a box of Ridex. I have a photo but see no where to upload it.

Septic tank activators are known to use a material that supports certain kinds of flower beetles, two have been noted in the past, the red flour and confused flour beetle.These products should be purchased and immediately used per product instructions and not stored. Buy fresh as needed. Without a food source, existing beetles will not survive in the home.
