I have a bunch of them in my apartment. I find one or two every day and it is starting to piss me off. They are about 1/2 inch long or so and are grey. They are kind of shaped like a stealth fighter, as in they have angled corners.

Probably moths.

They do not have wings.

Silverfish maybe.

I do not know enough about bugs to find a pic of them anywhere. IF someone posts a pic of what they think they MIGHT be, I can say yay or nay...

That helped. Am pretty sure is it some kind of beetle.

Beetles have wings- they are covered by a hard carapace when not in use. Been a while since I took entimology but post a pic and i'll see if they look familiar.

As soon as you said stealth, I knew it had to be a stinkbug.

Whatever you do , don't smush them.

Ortho Bug-B-Gone works real well. Just spray it around the edges of your apartment doors, windows, underneath cabinets, ... Shit just spray the base of every wall. and any plumbing hole in the walls

I made the mistake of crunching a stinkbug in upstate PA..in the bathroom. I don't know how it got there, but...yuck!!!! I didn't know what it was until afterwards. "EWWW, THAT STINKS!"
