What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Please help!
This awesome looking wasp-like insect was discovered on the window outside my house. I have searched your website, other websites, and several insect guides and cannot find anything like it. It somewhat resembles a mayfly and has three long whip-like tails protruding from its back section, but I’m pretty sure it’s not one. Can you help me identify this fascinating insect?
Thanks,
Andrea

Hi Andrea,
Nice collection. This is a Giant Ichneumon in the genus Megarhyssa.
