Big Legged Bug

Dear monicaz30,
This is a Big Legged Bug or Big Footed Bug in the genus
Acanthocephela, and though BugGuide does not note this behavior, we are speculating that like some other members of the family, it may enter homes as the weather begins to cool so it can hibernate.  The Big Legged Bug will not harm you or your home, though they may do some harm in the garden if they are plentiful.
