This looks like a flying black ant. Perhaps a carpenter ant? They only have wings for a short time (one day?) and I think that they are queens & males looking to start new colonies.
Carpenter ants love wood (hence the name)- they'd love to live in a log home too.
No they don't sting, but I think they can bite.
Do they sting
It's a carpenter ant and they fly on day out of the year then shed their wings.
do they sting?
My grandmother has been having a problem with these..She has a log home and was afraid that they were termite related..do they sting?
yah thats an ant, ive been watching them i have a group of them near my house P.S. i have some photos of a greak black wasp i saw im my garage this morning
yes those are ants though they do not eat wood they do nest in it there for still destroying it.. females have wings males do not
Im not sure, but a whole wack of em have showed up on my deck today......every other one seems to be wingless????? Strange buggy thing..im just as curious.
