I was wondering what kind of bug this is? I live in southwest Missouri and found it outside on the wall. I have never seen this type before and wanted to know if it bites or could be poisonous too. Any help would be great. Thank you!

Hi Michele,
This harmless moth is a Small Eyed Sphinx, Paonias myops.  It does not bite and it is not poisonous.
