Thank you for the question. The insect may be a long-horned beetle. It's hard to tell for sure but it's coloring, long antennae, and body shape indicate it may be from this family of beetle. Here is a link to other long-horned beetles for your comparison: http://bugguide.net/index.php?q=search&keys=long+horned+beetle&search=Search

Thank you for contacting Extension.
