I live in northern maryland in hagerstown its currently winter time in january but its been kind of mild. We have some kindof warm days for winter and I keep finding these bugs on my porch. Was just wondering what kind of bugs these are and if it is something on my porch attracting them. Please and thanks in advance.

Hi Laura,
This benign creature is a Winter Stonefly, and they are never found far from sources of pure, unpolluted streams.  We will elaborate on this when we have an opportunity.  See BugGuide for additional information.

  1. These things have invaded my home! Not sure where they are getting in, but I probably remove 3 or 4 every day. Some are larger than others. They do no harm, but I wish they’d stay outdoors!
    I’m in southeast PA.
