Boxelder Bugs

Boxelder bugs are generally considered harmless, will not intentionally invade your home, but may glom onto the outside, seeking shelter(?) and generally being a nuisance when they leave the tree (boxelder or other type of maple) they breed on.  The young are bright orange.  The adults are also orange, but cover that with black semi-translucent wings.
