Please help me identify this bug I have seen them by the door. I’m afraid they are wasps!
Fear Not. This is a harmless Stilt Legged Fly, Grallipeza nebulosa, not a Wasp. The species is pictured on BugGuide, and members of the family Micropezidae, according to BugGuide, are: “Known for their walking around and lifting their prominently marked front legs imitating ichneumon wasps.”
My fear has subsided. Glad I found this site. Thank you so much!
