6616. Hello, I live in an apartment building near a park in Toronto, Ontario. I have seen a couple of these bugs indoors throughout the summer. Not entirely sure what it is. My cat hunts bugs so want to ensure this is not something to worry about, for him or myself. Could you please identify it, and advise next steps? Thank you. Toronto, Ontario. Canada
Number 6616. This is nothing to worry about, it is a western conifer seed bug, Leptoglossus occidentalis (Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Coreidae), a common nuisance pest. Click here for more detailed information.
