Hi Keith,
There are two closely related species of Long Horned Borer Beetles that look nearly identical. The Painted Hickory Borer, Megacyllene caryae, appears in the spring and the Locust Borer, Megacyllene robiniae, appears in the fall. This could be a late Locust Borer, but our money is on an early Painted Hickory Borer.
