Burnt Pine Beetle is a member of the longhorn group of beetles that tend to be elongate and with long antennae. They commonly fly into homes and other buildings from close by pine trees or fire wood. Their large size can be of concern to people.
Adult burnt pine beetle females are 12-30 mm long. Males tend to be smaller than females.
Females are dark brown to black, while males are usually a lighter brown. The body is elongate and oval in cross section, as in most other longhorn beetles. The thread-like antennae are more than half the length of the body.
Adults live for several weeks and may be present between November and March.
Note: The Two Toothed Longhorn borer beetle looks similar but can be a threat to timber buildings.
