They resemble box elder bugs. Here is a link with more info: https://www.barplan.com/blog/red-bla...er-bug-menace/

According to the link, the application of dish washing or laundry detergent via a sprayer device will control them. I believe the soap/foam interferes with their respiration.

Box elder bugs love to swarm the side of your house in the fall. The lady bugs will be around doing the about now, too. I think for the warmth this time of year.

I'm a painter in Chicago land area and come across this problem a lot. I use downy in a spray bottle to keep them far away. Smells good too.
