While laying a patio foundation with leveling sand, I found this bug burrowing in the sand. Photo 2 shows what I found the morning after compacting the sand. ( I had covered the sand with plastic overnight.)
Thank you for any information.
This is a Mole Cricket in the family Gryllotalpidae . We have received images of Mole Crickets from many parts of the world, including many from American troops fighting in Iraq.
