This is an Eastern Boxelder Bug, a species that often aggregates in large numbers. Houses with light colored, south facing walls that are in the sun are favorite locations for aggregating. Eastern Boxelder Bugs are also known to enter homes to hibernate once weather begins to cool. The aggregations have led to common names like Populist Bug and Democrat Bug.
