    Found this in a plastic tub in my backyard last night. Anyone have any idea what this is? Freaked me out
    It's about 2 1/2 inches long

    It looks like one bug has it's head up another bugs butt.
    We do have a bug expert on this site.
    I'm not tagging him, but it's Mr Sinister. He knows his stuff.
