Can you identify this bug?

Found a swarm of these around my foundation yesterday and today during the warm weather, and in the sun. They have wings and fly. Mostly black with a little orange. Thank you....

This is the boxelder bug, a common nuisance pest in early spring. Some can enter the interior if there are openings around your windows.See the attached link.
