Weird Bugs Showed Up #805901

Asked August 11, 2022, 10:49 PM EDT

Hi! We have a dead strawberry tree in our yard and today about 20 of these super weird looking bugs showed up. We've never seen them anywhere in our yard before. They're brown with yellow stripes and the leg-span is about the size of a quarter. I captured one. Pictures are attached. Are these an invasive species? Is there anything we should do? Thanks! :)
