I Was A Bit Confused When I Seen This Bug…2 People Told Me It Was A Stink Bug, But I Didn’t Know What That Was! So I Just Looked Up Info On Here, And The Closest I Came To Was The Cottonwood Borer. Im Always So Curious About Types Of Bugs! Thanks So Much

Hi Lorrie,
You had the right family, but the wrong species.  Both the Cottonwood Borer and your insect, the Whitespotted Sawyer,
Monochamus scutellatus, belong in the Longhorned Borer family Cerambycidae.
