What the hell?! I found this gem in my tub. It's huge! No wings. Hard body. 6 jointed legs (like a spider's legs). Super freaking long feelers. What looks like pincers by its mouth. Either another pair of legs by it's butt, or it has another set of feelers. What is this?! My first thought was "holy shit I just found my first roach after living here almost 3 years," but it doesn't look like any roaches I've seen. I live in Missouri, if that helps.
I'm about to go get the neighbor kid to come get it lol. Maybe I'll put a glass over it and let him come dispose of it tomorrow.

You have to go in to your crawl space to kill them. They are harmless but those fuckers can jump 4 feet in the air. I hate them, I hate them, I hate them!

Woah! I've only ever seen little (or big) skinny, black crickets. I don't even live near NC!!

Catch it and ask around. You might look crazy but it should settle your mind. :)

Dang. I've never seen a cricket like this before. Sucker is huge!! I've only ever seen black crickets, and they're usually much smaller.

I read where you live and it scares the crap out of me that you are so close to me now. I have only seen them in NC. They call them "hoppers"  Nothing is worse than getting naked to get in the shower and see one in there. I was always afraid they would hop up in to my cooch! EW!

Omg. I'm not going into my bathroom again. I can get ready at work in the morning! And I'll just hold my pee lol
I don't even think I have a crawl space... I have a basement, though.
