Your letter to the bugman:  My Grandmother posted this picture on Facebook today and no one has any idea what it is. It kind of looks like some sort of wasp/yellow jacket but not 100%. We would love to know what it is. Could you please fill us in on what this cool looking bug is?
How you want your letter signed:  Michelle

Dear Michelle,
BugGuide is in agreement with you that this Sugar Maple Borer:  “Appears to be a mimic of Yellowjackets.”
