I’ve never seen this bug. My parents don’t recognize it.
The bug’s body is 7 (+/-1)mm long and has a well defined red pattern on the back.
I’ve found 2 in the kitchen at spring start. The weather was dry, cold and windy for 2 days after 15 days of (beautiful) warm spring days.
thanks for the help !

Hi Francisco,
We are quite pleased that you were able to properly identify your Stink Bug using our site and links.  This is relevant right now because for some reason, our less than ideal internet provider, Time Warner, is far from consistent with our service.  It has taken us over a half an hour to do this one posting.  We hope our readership will bear with us since we cannot answer our mail as this is taking way too much time right now.
