Bug from my metropolitan house in Monterrey, Mexico
May 14, 2010
I have been living in the Monterrey, Mexico area my whole life (36 yr). I´ve seen wear bugs in the country side, but yesterday I found this bug in the garage of my urban house. Would love if somebody help me with the name (don´t know much about bugs, it might be a common insect…) Thanks in advance

Female Dobsonfly

Hola Alex,
This is a female Dobsonfly, and she can deliver a somewhat painful, though not dangerous or life threatening bite if provoked.  The male, who has much more developed mandibles, in nearly incapable of biting.
