What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

What’s this bug?
It’s only about an inch long, dark iridescent blue body, and white tips on the antennae. I found it sitting on a shady leaf in my yard. Would love to have it identified.
Thanks!

Hi Dori,
This is one of the Clearwing Wasp Mimic Moths. It appears to be Synanthedon albicornis which ranges from New England to Oregon. The larvae bore into the trunks of willow trees.
