    Behavior
    Jerusalem crickets are very large, stout insects with big heads. Also known as stone crickets or potato bugs, they possess strong mandibles that can inflict a painful bite if the cricket is picked up and mishandled. Despite their somewhat frightening appearance, Jerusalem crickets are harmless. These crickets are primarily scavengers but will capture and kill insects for food, and they are occasional pests of plants by feeding on the roots. They are also important as food for many animals including barn owls, small hawks, bats, skunks, rodents and some scorpions.
