Found this little dude in the pool while prepping for spring setup. Grasshopper? Cricket? About 3 inches long.

Mole Cricket in Swimming Pool

Dear Kate,
This is a Mole Cricket, and though we have gotten reports in the past that they swim quite well, we do not consider them to be aquatic.  They are subterranean dwellers that can also fly.

  1. I found one of these and I have scoured the internet looking for what the heck it is! I found one running across our garage! Go figure I find it on this page!…we live in Canton, CT! I expected to find it in a rainforest in the Amazon! Not, literally next door, barkhamstead!! Haha
