Your letter to the bugman:  Letting my dog out and noticed this guy in a forgotten container. Looks like it has wings but doesn’t seem to be able to get out.  Thanks!

Mole Cricket

Dear Dawn,
Because of their large size, unusual appearance and nearly global distribution range, we get identification requests for Mole Crickets from many different countries and continents.  Some Mole Crickets are capable of flight, but they are basically subterranean dwellers that dig beneath the surface of the ground.

Location: Florida
