Mr. Bugman,
Here is a picture of a bug we found outdoors in Florida. It was approximately 2 1/2 inches long with pinchers near the top of it’s head. It attacked my husband’s shoe when he got near it. Do you know what is is called?

Hi Rene
We always like to have a photo of a Toe-Biter on our homepage, and had you scrolled down, you would have seen it. Toe-Biter and Electric Light Bug are both common names for the Giant Water Bug. They bite and it hurts.
