Western Conifer Seed Bug

Dear David,
This is a Western Conifer Seed Bug,
Leptoglossus occidentalis.  Though native to the Pacific Northwest, they have greatly expanded their range since the 1950s, probably with human intervention.  They frequently enter homes when the weather cools in order to hibernate through the winter.
