Wind Scorpion

predatory and harmless Solifugid

Doesn’t look harmless….. Lol

Well, not at all harmless if one is a Cockroach.  A Solifugid will keep your kitchen free of Cockroaches and most other things you might not want there.

good to know, thank you very much for your help!!!

Ed. Note
We are only able to post a small percentage of the identification requests we receive, though we do provide short responses like this example to as many requests as time will allow.  Occasionally the dialog that results from our short response gives cause to post the identification request on our site, like this example.  Closer inspection of the photograph indicates that there is debris covering this Solifugid, which leads us to believe it may have succumbed to Unnecessary Carnage.  We hope our further clarification has ensured the survival of any future Solifugids that Dave encounters.

now i feel bad for smashing the little guy 🙁 next time i run into one of them, they’ll be relocated outside to eat all the other bugs around the house.
