What type of bug is this?


We have these around the house. They don't seem interested in anything in particular. They aren't in our food, they don't seem to want to bite us or anything. I included two pictures. They are mostly brown with 4 black spots, and a black stripe along the smaller part of the back towards the head.

They don't seem to have any sort of stingers or anything. They move pretty slow, however, I could have sworn one jumped when I found it on the hard floor inside the doorway. So far I have found them just about anywhere, even rooms we hardly ever go in. We had the carpets replaced before we moved in, and we don't own any pets.

Any ideas? Pictures below.

Thanks

Looks like a stink bug.

Yes, I believe stink bugs are usually found near nickles or dimes.
