Is this a blister beetle? #764644

Asked July 29, 2021, 2:21 PM EDT

Found several dead beetles in a bale of alfalfa hay: could these be blister beetles and therefore dangerous to horses?

Baltimore County Maryland

Expert Response

This is not a blister beetle, but instead looks like a Field Cricket which happens to be missing all of its appendages (presumably due to the baling process).
