The Spotted Camel Cricket is also common in southeastern Canada as well as the northeastern United States all the way down to Texas.
They feed at night on plants and even eat other insects. They are most active from spring through summer, but occasionally, these insects find their way inside warm homes or buildings during the fall and winter. They will typically reside in the dark parts of a home, like a basement or cellar. Like other crickets, they are not dangerous to people; just large, fast and springy which usually startles an unaware passerby.
