Ichneumon Wasp in Ohio?

I have found a Ichneumon wasp in my home in ohio. Is this a common bug? Please let me know! :)


Yes. They're very common. And there are lots and lots of species of them in Ohio.

They are not a threat to people. They are parasitic wasps. They lay their eggs in bugs that often are a gardener's bain. So they are "good guys" to have around your garden.
