What are these bugs in my roach colony?

They are tiny, long bodied beetles in my roach colony. I have no clue what they are, but there are a lot of them.

Those could be either red flour beetles or confused flour beetles. If you notice them flying they are rusty grain beetles. Hard to tell difference without a microscope.

You will mostly see these when you are using a food source that came a feed store.
