    WWW.pestweb.com is a great site but you need to be a member. You can also post a pic and most of us can ID it for you.

    If they are box elders ,spray em with water/dish soap spray 2-3 time .Its softens the shell or cuticle .I have tried a few pesticide over the year with limited efffect.If they are lone straggler ,throw em in a can of soap water or vacum em up .They are just an invasive nuisance critter.
