I have a Cherry Tree and these little "lady bug" like beetles are all over it, and at night they attach themselves to our sliding glass door. They "pop" and fly off with the littlest of touches, just creepy. We have never seen these before. We are in Massachusetts.

I answer insect and spider identification questions ONLY. Attach images if possible. No "what bit me?", "what do I feed this bug in captivity?", or science fair project questions please. NO TECHNICAL QUESTIONS ABOUT INSECT PHYSIOLOGY.
