Box Elder Bugs
Many people are reporting what appears to be a lovebug. However it may actually be another nuisance critter known as the box elder bug (Boisea trivittatus). The adults are red and black in color, similar to the lovebug, and the nymphs are bright red. They will typically go unnoticed until they form large aggregations while sunning themselves that can frighten and annoy people. During the cooler months they can become especially problematic when they enter houses and other man-made structures. Like the lovebug, they do not sting or bite.
