Red-headed Ash Borer

Neoclytus acuminatus


Not sure what these suckers are, but I've probably found 100 of them in / around my house within the last few months, especially when it was mid-summer.


They seem to like my curtains. Never seen one in the wild.


These guys can fly, don't sting or bite, and are everywhere. They're really docile and allow you to pick them up without any fight. I call them Crickabees because they have legs like a cricket (but don't jump) and stripes like a bee (but don't sting.) Anyone know what these are??
