Field Cricket
Genus Gryllus

This is a wingless, juvenile Field Cricket, species unknown.  Some people consider a cricket
chirping in your house to be a sign of good luck.  At work we used to have one that was chirping in
the ladies restroom.  One day we located it and were going to dispose of it when a little lady from
Vietnam told us to just let it be and we would have good luck.  I guess she was kind of correct in
her belief  because every afternoon when I showed up for work, I was one day closer to retirement.
