Subject: weird bug in our house (second time)

got a couple weird bugs walking around our house and we have no clue what it is.
thanks for helping.
We believe this is a Spotted Pine Sawyer, Monochamus clamator, but we would not discount another member of the genus. If the beetle was found indoors, it may have come into the house in the dormant stage within firewood. Though the larvae bore in wood, they are usually very species specific and they will not do any structural damage to your home. The grubs are usually found in dead or diseased trees. You can read more about the Spotted Pine Sawyer on BugGuide.
you’re the best! thank you so much!
