Found this in my screened front entryway. Killed it with bug spray as we’re new to FL and unsure what bugs are good and what are not. Cannot find anything similar in searches. No identifying features except large carapace and brush-like front legs. Thank you for any information.

Dear Deb,
This is a harmless, subterranean Mole Cricket.  We hope the next individual you encounter lives.

Thank you very much, Daniel, for your prompt and informative response! We will ensure that any future encounters will be harmless removal outside where he/she may continue their job as God intended.  Have a great afternoon and Go Patriots!!  Deb

    Deb,
    If you spray every unidentified bug you come into contact with in Florida, you better buy stock in bug spray! Just find out what cock roaches look like and you’ll be okay.

    Kill first, ask questions later. There is a lesson to be learned here……including, but not limited to insects.
