It looks like a boxelder bug. I'm not an expert by any means, but do a google on it and look at the pics.

Most residual pesticides such as Talstar or Temp SC would do fine for perimeter treat. If they are that bad in the tree, you might consider spraying the tree.

Good Luck,
John

Although commonly referred to as the scentless plant bug, J. haematoloma is also called the goldenrain tree bug, redshouldered bug, and soapberry bug. In Sarasota County, they feed on seeds of goldenrain trees, Koelruteria species, which have dropped to the ground.

The adults of J. haematoloma are often mistaken for boxelder bugs that are also in the scentless plant bug family. Box elder bugs, however, occur in the north and west of Florida. Goldenrain tree bugs occur mainly in peninsular Florida and have been observed during every month of the year. May is reported to be their peak month of occurrence.

The combination of the current draught plus Sarasota Countyís more southerly location in Florida may have caused them to peak earlier this year. But considering the large number of developing nymphs observed in late March, they will most likely be present until May.

they are just a nuisance pest,they have will gather in clumps to catch a sunbeam ,when its getting cool or early morning.We never get call about em , most home owner just soak em with water and dish soap a couple times to soften their cuticle and subject em to diseases . Over the years i have tried several non restrict products and they seem to eat it for breakfast.I would not spray any vegetation, for obvious reasons .If they visit me this year it will be sticky traps and dawn at ten paces.

I use Demand CS around structures and it completly wipes them out. If it is a boxelder bug they will be on box elder trees and certain maples. Try a microencapsulated formulation for maximum control if you have access to them.
