Alright so I came home and outside on the wall of my house was this bug which at first I thought was a beetle, but now I’m not sure. The colors are more vibrant than shown in the picture. It has a red dot on its head and wings with black lines running down them.
Hopefully you can identify it. Its driving me crazy.
Thanks for the help.
Signature: Not sure I understand this question. Whatever way is best for you.
