What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

So I just got home and I found one  .  Of these Ivory Marked Beetles on my back door outside. I didn’t know what it was, so I got a sandwich bag and put it in and it bit me through the bag.

Dear Kiko,
We are attaching two images to your comment for posting purposes, an image of a Round Headed Apple Borer as well as an image of an Ivory Marked Beetle,  both members of the same family, the Longhorned Borer Beetle family Cerambycidae.  If we were put in a plastic bag, we would bite to get out as well.  Longhorned Borer Beetles have to chew their way out of wood, where they have been feeding as larvae often for many years, after they metamorphose into adults.
