Is anyone else dealing with this issue? There are these little (about the diameter of a dime) black beetle looking things with a red border around their bodies that are all OVER the outside of my home (but only around doors, oddly enough). They haven't gotten into my home, but I'm going to have to call an exterminator anyway. Is anyone else having this issue? Does anyone know what these things are??

By the way I'm living in Fairfield, CT (ignore the San Francisco, CA location under my name....I don't know how to change that)

Did you ever find out what it is? I work in Danbury and they are all over everything. They have gotten in the office too and are all over the windows.
