This looks like the discarded pupa of a ladybird, perhaps Harmonia axyridis, or the harlequin ladybird. It was introduced to the USA several times in the 20th century, and since the '80s, has managed to spread all over the country. Here in Britain, they are regarded as a serious pest, and are quickly out-competing our native species.
