Please help! Weevil?

Size: About 0.5 cm
These little bugs have taken over my apartment! Please help identify them. They seem to like moisture as they gather in the bathroom but are also all down the hall, in my baseboards, towels, sheets, pantry everywhere!! I’ve also found a cluster of about 50 dead ones in the corner so they must not have a long lifespan. My place is clean, no clutter so not sure what they are and Pest Control came to inspect but they couldn’t tell me what they are either and just told me to fumigate the place. But I would really like to know so I can prevent them from coming back or know where they came from, please help!

Frassed, yes a granary weevil
Moved from ID Request.

Check your pantry
I can't give you a solid ID, but this looks at least superficially similar to one of the Granary Weevils. Follow that link and scroll down to the Food section to see what they like to eat--then check those kinds of products for weevil larvae.
