Description

During this time of year and in preparation for winter, these guys seek the warm shelters that humans provide for themselves. Most probably get away with it but some individuals like this one get evicted. Since I won't kill it it'll probably find a way back in.

Description from Wikipedia

The western conifer seed bug, Leptoglossus occidentalis, sometimes abbreviated as WCSB, is a species of true bug (Hemiptera) in the family Coreidae. It was originally native to the warm-temperate western USA (California, Oregon and Nevada) but has in recent times expanded its range and become an invasive species in parts of Europe.
