Stink bug

Stink bug

5856  I found this very hard bodied beetle strolling across my bedroom floor near Leduc, Alberta.  Size of the body is just under 2 cm.  In normal light it is very dark, almost black.  Thank you for letting me know what it is and if I have to be concerned.   Thanks. Esther

This appears to be a stink bug (Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Pentatomidae), but it does not look to me like any of the species known to be native to your area. Are you by any chance in an area where international shipments arrive? All that aside, this insect will not damage anything in your home.  Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
