    Just call an exterminator. They should be able to tell you exactly what it is, and how to get rid of them.

    i'd rather have stinkbugs than the wasp somewhere in my house.

    I currently have, spiders, and sowbugs.

    But the ants are a bit late this year.

    QFT. Nothing like having one of those bad boys drop out of an oak tree onto your head. Let the screaming commence.

    I'll third this. A few years ago I was killing at least one of those little bastards a night. I eventually wiped them out, but one occasionally sneaks in the house.

    And when they fly...*shudders*

    Terminex is great! They took care of us when we had mice issues two years ago. Haven't had a problem since then. Terminex comes every three months, take care of the outer parameters, take care of the garage, windows, check for spiderwebs, practically everything.
    I haven't seen a sign of mice in two years since we've signed up with Terminex. Haven't seen those kind of bugs here either.

    (after googling) that's what those things are

    We get some of these from time to time so I just put some poison traps on top of the cabinets they haven't popped up recently

    Those things are common in NJ an PA where I have lived. My two houses and my Parents house have them. They are tough to kill. I'm surprised you've never had them before being in NJ.
