These Are In My House! Assassin Bug?
This is the 4th beetle like this I’ve found in my house in the past 2 weeks. I just find them in random places, though thy seem to be curiously close to windows (and one was on the floor in front of the fire place). I live in South Texas, is mildly cool right now, and these guys have never come in before now. I have a cat and a bird and I don’t want either getting stung by something that could hurt them. Could you puh-LEEZE tell me what these guys are? Thank a million!
This is a predatory stink bug known as a Brochymena. Stink Bugs often seek shelter indoors in fall and winter.
