I found several bugs in my apartment that have a body of an ant with fly wings and back legs like a cricket. What is it? Do they bite?

This is a beneficial Ensign Wasp.  The female lays her eggs in the ootheca or egg case of cockroaches and the larval wasps feed on the developing cockroach eggs, helping to control the populations of the household pests.  We have postdated your submission to go live during our absence from the office in early June.
