Hello, How are you??? I was wondering if u can help me identify what type of insect is this?? I never seen one like this before. Is it dangerous?? I found this outside by my apartment.. We previously just had new neighbors move in so I’m wondering if they brought this? Or is this an everyday bug you see ?? Please help!! Do I need to tell my landlord about this??

This is a Potato Bug or Jerusalem Cricket, and they are among our most common Southern California identification requests. Sightings peak after the onset of winter rains.
