Beetles in home

Hi i'm new to the forum. I'm having a problem with beetle type insects in my home. One type I see flying around brownish body and the other I've seen crawling on worktops in my kitchen black bodied. Mainly if there's crumbs on the worktop but I'm regularly cleaning, keeping all food sources bagged up and in cupboards. I have a young baby and noticing them on his formula tub so guessing one is a type of grain weevil. Is there anyway to get rid of these it's only recently started noticing them. I've attached picture best I could get. Hope you can help many thanks

Your photo shows a parasitoid wasp. Completely harmless except for its host.
