Two nights in a row i run across the same type of bug, which i have never seen before. Both bugs seem sick and dying and appear out of nowhere. About an inch long and seemingly wingless with long sturdy segmented antennae. Makes a quiet buzzing sound when provoked. No hairs on the legs that i can see. Underside of abdomen is banded. We’ve had hot humid weather both days they appeared. But I’ve never come across one before.
This is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, though we cannot provide you with a species name at this time.
