What Are These Beetles?

I have little brown ladybird type beetle things in my house and I can't find any answers to what they could be. Can you please help me find out what they are because my son has asthma and I have a new born baby in the house. I am petrified that they are harmful. Please help. Yours thankfully.

Catch one and take it to your County Extension office and see if they can identify it.. or google beetle identification.

I am presuming that you are talking about the Asian beetles that were brought over by stores to sell as ladybugs. They are harmless, but a nuisance and have an odor when one smashes them. Sealing up any windows or doors eliminating their access will keep from having them badly. That means caulking every little crack, but it works!
