I didn’t even have to move out of my bedroom for this one when this guy flew in the other evening. I believe it’s a Grizzly Locust: a type of grasshopper, usually found among the trees, pine trees preferably. The Grizzly Locust may come to lights, and it sometimes seen on wood siding and fences in areas near forests and pine trees, the kind of habitat where females are likely to lay fertilized eggs. They are active from mid-summer through autumn.
