Indoor Autumn Nature in New Jersey: Mutant Green Cricket.

I had been hearing loud noises in my basement. When I went down to investigate, found this mutant giant camel cricket. I don’t know what it has been eating to get this big, and cause it to glow in the dark. Maybe the radon seeping up from the Reading Prong???
