According to BugGuide, the larvae of Deathwatch Beetles are wood borers, but there is no mention about “bad omens.” This is a Brown Marmorated Stink Bug, an invasive exotic species, that bad omen or not, poses a significant threat to North American agriculture. Since its introduction in 1998, it has spread across the entire North American continent.
