Probably Dirt Colored Seed Bug

Probably Dirt Colored Seed Bug

Dear Jaimie,
This is probably a Dirt Colored Seed Bug in the family Rhyparochromidae.

So where does it come from? How come they are everywhere in my home what do I do to keep them out do they bite are they dangerous?

We can think of two possibilities.  One is that their habitat was destroyed, possibly with the clearing of a weed covered lot, and then then moved to your property.  Another possibility is that they are coming indoors to hibernate.  Dirt Colored Seed Bugs are not dangerous, but as you noticed, they can be a nuisance if they are plentiful.  See more on Dirt Colored Seed Bugs on BugGuide.  There are also some images on the Utah Pests website.
