CLOSED: Beetle Needs Identifying from Central NY

East Syracuse, NY

I found bug crawling up kitchen windowsill a day after we got a foot of snow. Not sure if it was looking for warmer accommodations, but I wanted to know what it was and if I need to look out for more of his family. The bug is about 1/2 inch long with striped antennae. It crawls pretty fast and can easily crawl up vertical slopes.

i think it might be a Wheel Bug...a good guy in the garden if it is but can give a nasty bite when handled.

Brown marmorated stink bug - definitely NOT a good guy...
