Found near Charlotte, NC
found him in my home, what is a common name? Proctotrupes wasp?

No common name
This is one of the many insects without a common name. I'd go with the family for a common name, Proctotrupid sp.

Moved from Proctotrupes.

Proctotrupes caudatus
the males in our area seem to have a completely black forebody.
