The other day there was a colony of some sort of odd looking insect on the side of our house. Boyfriend tried to get them to go away so he could open the door (they were right on the back door) without letting any inside, but ... some got in anyway.
They are smallish, about the size of a small cricket. Similar body type to a boxelder bug. But the coloring of a lady bug, with a red back with black circles, but black legs and head. And they fly. I can't get pictures because they are either too fast to catch, or I catch them and put them outside and I hate bugs too much to try to get a clear picture, yuck! I searched the North American bug database and couldn't find a picture that fit them, closest was the box elder but the color scheme is off.
