What in the world is this?

I was breaking down an old tree stump in my front yard when I noticed this..What in the world is this?Looks like a caterpillar, but only had front legs. I ended up putting the little guy back in a different part of the stump. The wood was way too damp to use in the fire pit anyway..

  • I think it's a little (I don't know the English word) that becomes a butterfly later

  • It's a grub. A beetle larva of a wood boring beetle

      Ahh thanks! I'm guessing that there's probably a bunch of them in the stump?

      If you knew what the tree was you could probably narrow it down to which species. No I wouldn't say a bunch like termites

      I have no idea lol, it was here on the property when I moved in. The other trees are small, maybe 10 years old. I'll probably just haul it off to the dump. Thanks for the help!

      Yea, but fortunately they are pretty easy to deal with. One application of something like Grub X should rid them if it's not too widespread. Or at least that's my experience with "crop circles".

      Yes, I was informed a few hours ago, but thanks for answering.

  • Its an young one of a beetle. Australian Cicada beetle looks similar.

      Yeah, that's what reptocarl was telling me. Just kinda trips me out. I do see beetles around here, but they're smaller than the grub/beetle larva I seen earlier..

      I have got a book on beetles at home. I got it cheap. So I bought it. I saw a similar picture on that book a long time ago.

  • It is a grub, the larva stage of a beetle

      No deal, I don't kill any insects, whatever unless they invade my home and propose a threat of health or harm. I would have 10 years ago though..
