This bug is somewhat of a plague in our nice cabin in the woods of Montana. They live inside and outside and we can’t figure out where they’re coming from or how to get rid of them.

Hi confounded in the cabin,
This is a Western Conifer Seed Bug, Leptoglossus occidentalis, and other than being an annoyance, it will not harm you or your cabin. Western Conifer Seed Bugs often seek shelter indoors when the weather begins to cool so they can pass the winter in hibernation. They feed upon juices from the cones of conifer trees.
