Firebugs (Pyrrhocoris apterus) are native to Europe, also found in Northern Africa (except the Canary Islands), and Central and South Asia. Northern Utah is the only place in the United States you can find these insects documented in Salt Lake County in 2008.
Attractive, harmless to human, red-and-black firebugs are the most common species of the family Pyrrhocoridae in Europe and the only representative species of the family living in Lithuania.
The firebug’s status on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species: Least concern
