Please Identify this Insect

I found a bunch of these clustered the side door entrance of my house. I got rid of them and now I'm finding some in the house on occasion. Can anyone tell me what type of bug this is and how do to get a rid of them? Thanks!

Thats pretty cool, I don't think I've seen them before. Reminds me of firebugs but with inverted colours.

We get them here in central SK in the fall. I hate them, they are gross.
Also called maple bugs.

Why would you be worried about the dog eating them? Canine/feline Snacking is actually pretty good for some bug/spider/pest control!
