Large Cricket Like Bug
October 24, 2009
Here I’ve found a large cricket like bug with really long antennae. The actual body of the bug looks to be about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch in length (not counting the legs or antennae. They seem to gravitate towards mice glue traps. Any help regarding these guys would be greatly appreciated.

These are Camel Crickets or Cave Crickets. They need dark, damp locations to live and reproduce. Indoors, they are found in basements where they may eat paper and fabric. Though we don’t normally provide extermination advice, many of our readers ask how to rid their homes of Camel Crickets. Your photo says it all.
