6729.      I live in almost the exact centre of B.C. I found this while working inside in my office, from other pictures it seems to me a maritime earwig but those I believe are on the coast, the nearest body of water to me besides the river would be about 10 miles, I have put it in an empty pill bottle, will I have others of this type in the house. I also have other pictures if you need them. Vanderhoof, BC. Canada
