6202 I was letting the dog in and this thing flew into the house. I grabbed it to put it back outside and the jerk either bit or stung me! Nowhere near as bad as a wasp or bee sting but still a little stabbing pain for 15 min or so. The bug looked to be a little over an inch long from tail to head. From Winnipeg.
Number 6202 – This is an ichneumon wasp (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae) in the subfamily Ophioninae. These primarily are parasitic on the larvae/pupae of moths (one species parasitizes larvae of a scarab beetle). Although not venomous, they can give a sharp ‘sting’ with their needle-like ovipositor (personal experience).
