Your letter to the bugman: Hey Bugman!
I was about to make some coffee when I heard a deep buzzing above me and looked up to find a rather large black flying insect (fly? wasp?) circling by the window trying to escape. It’s got a black body about 3/4 of an inch long with black and clear speckled wings that extend out another centimeter or so. The only identifying marks I could see are symmetrical white spots on the last couple tergites. I wanted to help it escape, but I have no idea if it stings or bites and didn’t want to risk it.
Thank you so much!!
