Can't tell much from the image provided. Is it a type of wasp?

RE: Costa rica congos bug??

The image is too blurry to see anything other than it may, possibly, be a flying insect of maybe the wasp family. A web seartch does not come up with anything called a Costa Rica congos bug.

Thread continues here w/improved image:

Looks like a Hymenoptera (wasp & bee group) as has already been suggested.

Any chance of obtaining its technical name? Perhaps from your local agricultural authority/agency?

Likely the agency would also have management suggestions.

Here is a link that might be useful: an improved image
