Size: 1/4 inch
Thank you in advance for your help! The head of this bug is black with big black eyes on the side. The thorax is a translucent copperish-brown with two legs. The abdomen is copperish-brown with a black section running down the middle. There are four legs on the abdomen. This bug comes out in warm weather at night in our living room when we have the lights on at night. We don't find it in the other rooms. Our living room has lots of windows. These bugs fly toward the can lights, then fall down with a "pop" noise when they hit the leather chair, floor, etc. In the morning we find them dead on the floor, counters, etc. We can't tell if they are coming in around the windows or can lights. They are driving us crazy...ha...so thank you for helping us learn what they are so we can eliminate them!
