What type of a bug is this?


It looks like it could be either some kind of a big ant or a poor bee that lost it's wings.

    Do they sting? Are they otherwise harmful? I'm glad holestory asked because I've seen something similar to these on my stone steps leading down to my house. My bugs may the the same ones. I think mine are dark charcoal gray and red. They are pretty.

    In the east they are eastern velvet ants. Wasps whose wingless females resemble large, hairy ants. So it is actually a female wasp without wings.

    On the side of the cement(?), it is the red mark with two black stripes at one end - it has a dark shadow above it on the cement. (I believe that the pinkish color up top is the inside of an upper piece of cement.)
