Too early, not nearly enough meat on that, needs growing on a while.

Hard to say without a sense of scale etc. Was it found in alive of dead wood?

Possibly Nacerdes melanura (Wharf borer) or similar.

not sure what you mean?

 

 

 

 

i've been chipping bark off and squashing anything that wriggles.

 

Think along the lines of 'i like children, but I couldn't eat a whole one'.

And I will call you at some point! Got three kids throwing up at the mo :thumbdown:

i'm not 100% sure that it is the orange longhorn as it says in that link that it's a decimal point off of 7mm and is in the states. this one i have it 15mm long.

 

i have now trimed the side of the boards in question and they will go in the fire asap.
