I can’t seem to figure out what kind of bug this is. Should I be worried about this type of bug in my house? I also found one on my porch. Thank you!

Dear Isaac,
Just yesterday we posted another image of a Reddish Brown Stag Beetle.  Males, like your individual, can be identified by the enlarged mandibles.  Male Stag Beetles are often attracted to lights.  Though they are not considered dangerous and they will not harm your home, if you do not want to be troubled by them, we suggest you turn off the porch light.
