Long-horn Beetle Immature

This is a roundheaded woodborer pupa. It is an immature of the long horned beetle.  In general, roundheaded woodborers attack trees or parts of trees that are already dead or dying. Roundhead woodborers would be expected to be tunneling in this rotting wood.

Eggs are laid in the bark and in spring larvae burrow into the wood and will tunnel for two to three years.

These are known to infest lumber.
