My girlfriend is scared

We have been finding these bugs on the carpet in the last week. We moved in to the house about a month ago. The weather has been unseasonably cold here but it is nearing the later part of winter. The house is on a crawl space and we have hard wood flooring in the living room

This is a Camel Cricket in the family Rhaphidophoridae and it was our featured Bug of the Month last month. Though they can be a nuisance in the home, Camel Crickets are harmless. What appears to be a stinger is actually the ovipositor, the organ the female uses for depositing eggs. The Camel Crickets are probably proliferating in the crawl space and somehow finding their way inside.
