Western Conifer Seed Bug

Dear Ken,
The Western Conifer Seed Bug is an insect with well documented behavior of entering homes when the weather cools so it can hibernate.  Native to the Pacific Northwest, the Western Conifer Seed Bug has greatly expanded its range in the last 50 year.

Dear Daniel,
Thank you very much. We were/are concerned as our grand children visit our cabin often.
I looked at your link which provided additional information.
What would you suggest the best way to contain and eliminate these bugs?
Thank you,
They are not dangerous.  We do not provide extermination advice.
Location: Vermont
