Hi, I appreciate what you do very much! I moved a n object that was covered and had some moisture and darkness under it. I live in Augusta , Georgia and the time of this find was Septumber 28th and 82 degrees . There were many of these insects in a group and I managed to snap a photo of this one.
Please let me know what kind of bug this is?
Thank you,

Hi Larry,
Camel Crickets like the one in your photo are frequently found in damp, dark places like cellars and crawl spaces.  Camel Crickets are also known as Cave Crickets.

  1. Up here in the Northeast they were called “hotterbugs” by the real old-timers. Their habits, which include sudden spectacular jumps and the ability to cling to a vertical sheet of glass, make them fun for kids.
