What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

found in FL
We are collecting bugs for a unit on insects. This was on the front porch in the evenings in August in Palm Bay, Fl. The box is 1 1/2" square and the wing span is 2". The wings looked black until I saw it in the sun today and the green irridescence was visible. So beautiful! Please help. The closest I can come to it is an insect in Africa!! There is no rush as the unit will be taught in the New Year. We are collecting now because there aren’t very many here in the winter months. Thanks,
Patricia Fife

Hi Patricia,
We have many letters with information on the Polka-Dot Wasp Moth on our moth pages. This is the first image we have seen where the wings look green. They generally look blue-black.
