I found it in my basement and it's really freaking me out. I HATE BUGS! This thing resembels a beee, wasp or hornet and it frigging flies!!! The underside of it has yellw stripes like a bee, but has wings like a hornet or wasp... It's an ugly sucker.

I told my Dumb hubby not to put the rest of the firewood in the basement and he didin't listen. I think that is how it got in. We have seen a few of them since and of course out went the wood ASAP!!!


I'I've looked on the internet but I'm still not sure what it is.

How do you think I feel? It makes my skin crawl. I about jumped out of my skin when I first saw that hideously ugly thing.

Oh they certainly do fly. I'm thinking they came in with the firewood hubby put in the basement. In the mean time I'm a bit freaked out.
