Is this a cricket?
November 26, 2009
What type of insect is this. It is about 1 inch long and very slow moving and docile (can hold it in your hand). I see them on the side of my house and found the one in the pictures in my garage (@ 50F !). We originally were affraid they were Asian long horned beetle but obviously they are not. Can you identify?
With the onset of winter, the number of identification requests we receive for Western Conifer Seed Bugs increases as they seek shelter indoors to escape the cold. They are harmless, and they will hibernate through winter, producing a new generation in the spring.
