Crawling house insect - Neoclytus caprea
East Coventry Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, USA
March 29, 2014
Size: 5/8"
We have found about 10-15 of these crawling in our first floor family room.

Moved
Moved from ID Request.

Looks like
Banded Ash Borer

Firewood?
This is a wood boring beetle. Did you bring firewood inside?

 
Firewood?
Yes we did and after I posted I wondered if that could be it. Could they infest the house or cause damage? We have some of the same wood in the garage.

Thanks

 
Unlikely
They don't eat houses as far as I know, and the life cycle is too long for them to reproduce quickly.
