This bug was found on our stove. Looks like a cross between a cricket and a roach. The chevron design is something we have never seen before. What is it, and should be afraid?
This Assassin Bug, Microtomus purcis, has no common name. Like most members of its family, it is a beneficial predator, however, it might bite if carelessly handled.
