If you catch a female and remove one front leg, she will cut you a neat screw. Not coming to the beginning of her groove, she will continue cutting until she runs out of energy. I watched one do this, but i did not remove the leg. Maybe some bird did it.

Oncideres cingulata (Say) is an east Texas bug. This is Oncideres pustulata LeConte...
