My First
I just want to mention that both times I have seen an adult one of this bug was at night with lamp on!!

 
These beetles
often are drawn to light, as are many other kinds of insects. I think the vast majority of long-horned beetles I have photographed were at my porch light at night.

Cheers.

 
Longhorn beetles
I did figure it would be that but was not sure if would bite humans Thank you! I do hope someone tells me what species eactly!
