Western Conifer Seed Bug

Western Conifer Seed Bug

Dear Bill & Family,
Every year at this time, we get reports of Western Conifer Seed Bugs, Leptoglossus occidentalis.  They are noticed as they enter homes to hibernate as winter approaches.  This species is native to the Pacific Northwest, but has spread across the continent since the 1970s.  They are harmless.
