Elm Sawfly

Dear Sara,
The Elm Sawfly is a non-stinging distant relative of Bees and Wasps, and it is perfectly harmless.

Wonderful! Thank you! We were leading a STEM camp for middle school girls when it appeared. We all got a good look at it and then gently moved it to some plants.
I appreciate the help!
Sara
