    What is this?

    Sorry for the blurry photo but I am hoping that someone can identify this insect. We have seen a couple recently. As you can see, this is inside the house. Do I care?

    You might not care now because it is only one. But when he gets together with the rest of the band, and you wake up to find your big screen TV gone.....you'll have a totally different attitude towards them sharing your living space.

    Looks like it might be the False Bombardier Beetle?

    I was on a mission trip after Katrina and saw a kinds of new insects down there. It didn’t matter who I asked when I saw a different one what it was. Standard answer was it’s a bug in a southern accent. In their defense we only have maybe 20 types up here so they are easy to remember.

    That sure looks like it to me. Thanks for the find. Now I am trying to determine if this is an insect that can cause any problems. I can't seem to find anything to cause concern.

    We have a wooded lot and see lots of insects outside. We have been pleased with out little have made it indoors on a regular basis (especially with a dog that likes to explore the woods). I just don't want to ignore something that may be problematic.

    So flyweight was sort of correct but I'm with herminator, it's a bug, and bugs must die when found in the house.

    This year we had box elder bugs like crazy in the house all winter to the point we could kill 10-20 a day. Finally I called a reputable place but thought sure they will spray and there is no way it’s going to work. It was $85.00 and the next day no bugs or dead bugs.
