Brown marmorated stink bug

6825.       I’ve seen a few of these over the past little while (from about mid-winter), in various places in my home in north Toronto. (This one is dead) Only one at a time, and upstairs as well as main floor. I’ve just taken them outside, but please let me know if I should be concerned or take control measures. Toronto, Ontario. Canada
