whats this bug ?
This bug has been hanging out on our living room ceiling for 3 days, in the same spot !? It’s just over an inch in length. We live in Kamloops B.C. Canada, and were wondering if you know what it is? We think it’s some kind of moth but we are curious to know more about it,considering its decided to move in with us : ) We attached a better, bigger picture…. hope it helps.

Hello there Heidi and Keiffer,
This is a Giant Lacewing, Polystoechotes species. These are the largest North American Neuropterans. At night they are sometimes attracted to lights which probably explains its presence in your home. According to the Audubon Guide, little is known of the life cycle.
