My friend found this bug as it flew into his house when he opened the door. He’s in Windsor, Ontario and it’s late spring/summer time. I’ve looked on google and your site for hours but can’t find anything that has that yellow band or green colour… The best my research could do was narrow it down to possibly be a sawyer or a borer. I’m not sure how big it is, since he posted it to Facebook via is iPhone. Any help?

Giant Stonefly

Hi Renee,
Though it has long antennae, this is not a borer nor is it even a beetle.  It is a Giant Stonefly in the genus Pteronarcys which you may verify by viewing this individual on BugGuide.
