    $\begingroup$ Your country/state will help in getting an answer; a more-in-focus photo (if available) would also assist ... the best anyone can do at the moment is "it's a beetle." $\endgroup$ Jul 2 '17 at 20:43

    $\begingroup$ It is in Lebanon. That's the maximum zoom my cell have. Sorry. I want to identify them so I can get rid of them. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If you are taking pictures with your cellphone it's usually better not to use the zoom. Cell phones, at least the ones I am aware of, don't usually have a real optical zoom, just a digital zoom. Essentially its the same thing as cropping the center out of a picture and then stretching it bigger. You don't actually get any more information. $\endgroup$

It looks to me like a cigarette beetle- they can infest many different types of products so I would definitely check everything carefully. Here's the link I used as a source, you can find more info here: https://www.orkin.com/other/beetles/cigarette-beetles/

I think it's fair warning that these little guys may be infesting your products. The link I used as my source for this information has more detailed info on how to check and what kind of cigarette beetle can ride around in there! https://bonaccordpestcontrol.co.uk/service/beetle-pest-control-uk/
