Camel cricket

Rhaphidophoridae

Description:

Large cricket.

Habitat:

Cave and camel crickets are of little economic importance except as a nuisance in buildings and homes, especially basements. They are usually "accidental invaders" that wander in by mistake from adjacent areas. They generally reproduce indoors, especially in situations that provide continuous dark, moist conditions, such as a basement shower or laundry area, as well as organic debris to serve as food.

Looks like a camel cricket to me. They like dark damp storage buildings.
