The Locust Borer lays eggs in the bark of Black Locust trees. Larvae overwinter in the inner bark. In spring, the larva construct tunnels about 4 inches into the wood, where they pupate and finally emerge from the tree during summer. Adults are often seen feeding on Goldenrod blooms in the fall (like this one).
