I believe I found a Ponderous Borer, should I move it or leave it be?

Asked September 5, 2020, 12:43 AM EDT

Do you think it poses a risk to damaging a home with its larvae or should I move this one back to the recently fell trees behind our house?

This beetles does not pose any threat to a man-made wood structure becasue the wood is too dry. Leave it be.
