Subject: Huge Scary Pincer Bug from CT
Geographic location of the bug: Northeast Connecticut USA
Time: 11:52 AM EDT
Your letter to the bugman: My gf screamed and pointed at this monstrosity on the side of a building. I’d never seen anything like it before but weird bugs tend to show up during the summer around here. We’re just left wondering what it is and (mainly for my girlfriend) is it gonna kill us?
How you want your letter signed: Brennan Hare
The male Dobsonfly is perfectly harmless. Dobsonflies are among our most common summer identification requests.
