Help! First it was the invasion of the Asian Beetles that look like
ladybugs, now we're being overwhelmed with a new bug and I could use some
help identifying it.
It is black, has 6 legs and is a half-inch long. Body width of
It has two antennae, which are almost as long as its body.
It can fly, but it mostly walks on the windows in sunny locations.
When the wings open, they are bright orange, almost the same color as
ladybugs. When they are closed, they form a /\\ on the top of the bug body.
It's like an orange detail stripe.
They began appearing after our first freeze and just like the Asian beetles,
are trying to make their way indoors. There are hundreds of them all over
our windows and doors, in sunny locations, and of course every time you open
the door, some make there way in.
I'm in Wisconsin and have never seen these before. Any ideas?
