Hi, I found this in my basement. I tried looking it up because it's head/mouth looked so strange, like a hook. All I could come up with is the kissing bug or assassin bug, so, obviously, I like an expert opinion! How can I send a picture?
There are over 35, 000 bugs of this type in nature. the coloration and general shape of the insect photos you provided in another thread do not suggest this as a "kissing bug" You bug likely found a crack or crevice to crawl into that eventually lead them to your basement. Without a natural food source, it would eventually perish.
