Big brown, furry bug in Texas
April 10, 2010
I was startled today by this big brown furry bug I saw in the street. The three things I thought it was before I more closely inspected it were a scorpion, spider, or a beetle. However, it is definitely not a spider or a scorpion, Maybe a beetle.
We have been getting numerous requests to identify Mole Crickets lately. Mole Crickets, as their name implies, are subterranean diggers that are also capable of flying. Sometimes they are attracted to lights.
Thanks. I actually figured it out before you helped me but yea. I would have never guessed it was a cricket. It was much more scary looking than a cricket. I read that they ate rarely seen. Everyone I showed had never seen one so I guess that’s true. A cricket…haha…and I was afraid to pick it up. Thanks
