At the moment we are finding new examples of this bug every day in the house. We live in the Netherlands close to the German border. We live in the country in an old farmhouse.
thanks to anyone who can help.
It is Rhyparochromus vulgaris, one of many species of ground bug.
They can come into a house with firewood, whence they'll wake up from hibernation.
