I found these in my appartment (we live in a half basement). It's been three so far and I can't find the thing anywhere in insect lists, etc. Could you tell me what type of insect this is?
This is a camel cricket (family Rhaphidophoridae); T. H. Hubbell's 1936 monograph on the genus Ceuthophilus has a key to the North American genera then known (and those added since are not found in Canada). The photograph does resemble specimens of Ceuthophilus that I have collected and may well be that genus.
It looks like a cricket. There may be other possibilities, depending largely on where you live, but crickets are very familiar insects over much of the world, and that's pretty much what they look like. ;)
