Found crawling in the house. Would like to know if they are poisonous as I am an avid reptile collector and breeder and they may be attracted to my bioactive vivariums.

Dear Bee,
This is a Western Conifer Seed Bug, a species that frequently enters homes to hibernate when the weather begins to turn cold.  To the best of our knowledge, they are not poisonous.
