A recent video shows a cricket being removed from a man's ear.
Michael Sweet a professor at the University of Derby told the Daily Star Online that the insect is an Indian house cricket.
Sweet said: "These critters are known to be an invasive species, appearing all over the globe.
He added that: "It is likely this cricket crawled into the man's ear while he was sleeping and was just hiding there until night came around. This beastie will have just been uncomfortable for the victim. However, it could possibly have done some damage to the inner-ear which would have resulted in temporary balance and hearing issues."
