mamorated stink bugs?

Asked October 18, 2016, 3:36 PM EDT

A few days ago hundreds of the small bugs appeared on the siding outside several house by me. The small ones are black and I think have a red underside. From my research, they look like boxelder bugs. The other pic I took outside and wonder if it is the stink bug. Can you identify for me? Thanks, Ann Hadley

Yes, the one on the left is a boxelder bug. The one on the far right is not a stink bug but rather another family of true bugs the Coreidae (leaf-footed bugs), possibly this one http://bugguide.net/node/view/1301108/bgimage (or something close to this).
