Dear bugman,
In the last 4 years this bug has appeared in the area of my parents house. In the fall it tries to enter the house. There are dozens trying to get in. We find them all winter. My parents have lived there for 30 years and they were never there before. When threatened they emit a bad odor.

Western Conifer Seed Bug

Hi Nick,
This is a Western Conifer Seed Bug, and it is a benign creature that will not harm your home or its inhabitants.  Western Conifer Seed Bugs attract the most attention in the fall months when they are mature and seek shelter, often inside homes, where they hibernate until spring.
