I saw this on the sidewalk today. It was about an inch and a half long. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take the picture until after my mom stepped on it! Please help!?
We hope the reason your mom stepped on this harmless Pigeon Horntail is because she didn’t see it while she was walking, but we suspect otherwise, so we are tagging this as Unnecessary Carnage. Pigeon Horntails are Wood Wasps and they do not sting. The Pigeon Horntail was selected as our Bug of the Month for September 2011.
