Red Headed Ash Borer

Hi Dave,
You have Red Headed Ash Borers,
Neoclytus acuminatus, emerging from your firewood.  The larvae are wood borers.  There are many insects that have larvae that are wood borers, and one of the dangers of transporting firewood great distances is the potential to introduce species to the area that are not indigenous.  Red Headed Ash Borers are very effective wasp mimics.
