Your letter to the bugman:  Found this guy climbing up the wall inside our house after he was knocked off a blanket.. initially thought termite? But the things on his butt made me think earwig. Tried googling to no avail..
Currently April 2nd in Washington state.
Thank you for reading,

Dear AJ,
This is a Stonefly, a harmless insect that is found not far from a source of fresh water because they develop as aquatic larvae or naiads.  We believe we have matched your individual to this image posted to BugGuide of a Stonefly in the genus
Skawla which is classified in the subfamily Perlodinae, commonly called Springflies, presumably because they fly in the spring.
