Hello Mr. Bugman, I was wondering if you could help me identify this bug. I suspect it might be a borer of some kind. I found him climbing up the window today. Thank you so much! And thank you for your wonderful website!!!

Dear Merrillville Lady,
You found a Western Conifer Seed Bug.  We have tagged this species as one of our Top 10 identification requests because Western Conifer Seed Bugs often enter homes as the weather cools.  They hibernate indoors and become active again in the spring.

    Mr. Bug Man, does the Western conifer seed bug have a dangerous bite if disturbed. my wife was bitten by one and it was very painful

      To the best of our knowledge, other than pain, the bite of a Western Conifer Seed Bug would not be considered dangerous.
