What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

large iraqi bug
My husband took this picture of a large >2.5 in insect found in a workspace in Iraq. It appears to be similar to a Jerusalem cricket. Is that what it is? If you could give me any information I could send to my husband and his coworkers (diet, lifecycle, etc), I would appreciate it. Thanks,
Camille

Hi Camille,
We get Mole Cricket inquiries from around the world, and many from Iraq. Mole Crickets live underground where they eat plant roots.
