6182 Have found several in the second floor of house over a few weeks – insect smells with sharp odour when crushed – what are they? Regards, Larry D.
Like no. 6177, this appears to be an elm seed bug, Arocatus melanocephalus (Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Lygaeidae). See https://tinyurl.com/y77dynqq for more detailed information. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
