Sneaking into Houses

As the days get shorter and the nights cooler, box elder bugs, Boisea trivittata, find their way into any little crack in the woodwork, where they become common household pests all winter long.

It seems to me that the eyes are especially bright red now.  They fade over time.

This is a colorful, beautiful insect.  But they are less welcome inside the house than out.
