I live in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, this is pics of a bug we are finding in our home. I have lived here most of my life, and have never seen one, looking forward to hearing what it is. It is early Autumn here, November.

Northern Two Striped Walkingstick

Dear Tonya,
Your creature is a Northern Two Striped Walkingstick, which is a somewhat ironic name since it seems BugGuide only reports it south of the Mason-Dixon Line.  According to the BugGuide genus page:  “Members of this genus can deliver a chemical spray to the eyes that can cause corneal damage.
