Camel Cricket

This is a Camel Cricket in the family Rhaphidophoridae.  They are frequently found in dark, damp basements where they will feed on a large variety of materials.  According to BugGuide:  “Most are omnivorous and will feed on most anything organic. Many (if not most) will catch and eat other smaller animals when they can. In houses may chew on paper products, occasionally fabric.”

Location: Indianapolis, Indiana
