Keep finding these bugs in my house , alive and some dead. Please help.

Answer
Hi Geryl
These are True Bugs from the Order Hemipters and from the Family Reduvidae. These are related to the Stink Bugs. They are outdoor bugs and are seeking shelter and are not breeding in the house. Since they are plant feeders they are dying off. Keep sweeping them up. They will be gone and can cause no damage in the house
