Boxelder Bugs

unknown beetles
Hi there.
I’ve got these guys all over my siding, and occasionally they make their way into the house. I have no idea what they are, but I’d like to know if they’re going to do any damage to the house or bite anyone. My house is in St. Catharines, Ontario, near Niagara Falls. Any assistance that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Michael,
These are not beetles, but Boxelder Bugs. They seek shelter inside homes to hibernate. They get very numerous, forming huge aggregations. We currently have an advertiser on our site that claims to be able to erradicate them.
