Please identify this bug!
Hi, I love your site and I appreciate all the effort you go to to help your fans. I think I’ve checked every page on your site but I can’t find this bug anywhere. I live in New York about one hour north of NYC, I have a large pond on my property. This is the smallest one of these creatures I have found, the largest one was about the length of a cell phone! All told, I have come across 6 or 7 of these. Any information on what it is and wether or not it can be harmful to children or pets would greatly be apprciated. Thanks! Regards,

Hi Nelson,
Mole Crickets are subterranean burrowers that can also fly. We get images of Mole Crickets from all over the world, including many from the Middle East that are sent in by are armed forces.
