Red Headed Ash Borer

Yellow / black stripes , cricket legs, no wings, 2 segments
I live in Florida panhandle. It doesn’t appear to have wings. Oddly this is the second bug I found in the same exact location (both flushed). It is on a window blind making it maybe 1/2 inch long. Mainly want to make sure my kids are safe. Thank you.

Hi Chris,
This Red Headed Ash Borer, Neoclytus acuminatus, will not harm your children.
