WOW!! We had a lot of good guesses on what that ugly bug is (both here and on FB) but here is the answer and the rest of the story (which you might find interesting!!)
Just so ya know, we DO have an ample supply of earwigs this year! THEY ARE TERRIBLE! I have to take a flash light and look inside the coffee maker before making coffee (it is black inside of it) and check my bath towel in the morning. I wouldn't be surprised if I squeezed one out of my Crest toothpaste!
There are some smart people out there! Even our niece Stephanie, knew
what that ugly bug was...and she lives in LOWER Michigan. I had no idea
these bugs are "all over" the U.S. and other countries. Here is a link
if you want to read up on the ANT LION!!!
I am reading a book called the Poisonwood Bible (not sure why it is called that), but even in this book, which takes place starting in Georgia and then to the Congo, THE WRITER WRITES ABOUT THESE BUGS!!! So they ARE all over!
