No, you have it confused with something else. The bug pictured is harmless.

It looks like a kissing bug. Be careful, if it is, they bite both animals and humans. Nasty...

No, it doesn't look anything like a kissing bug. And the bite of a kissing bug isn't dangerous. It's their feces which carries a parasite which causes a disease called Chagas.

If it is the same , and it looks like it is , in Chiapas it is called tutsis in Tzeltal , it is a type of stink bug. If you touch it it stinks  but it is harmless.   Tsis in maya is to fart.. so it gives you an idea...

Good to know. A couple of days ago I had the same exact bug staring at me through our office window as I was on the computer!
