Your letter to the bugman: These bugs are in our living room. New to us. We have a wood stove but they seem to be on the couch in front of wood stove.

This is definitely the adult of wood boring grubs in the family Cerambycidae, and it looks to us like a Banded Ash Borer, Neoclytus caprea, based on images posted to BugGuide. That determined, the wood from your wood burning stove is a likely source of their appearance. Though they will emerge from firewood, they will not reproduce in the milled lumber in your home or its furnishings.
