    They have been known to lay eggs in the ear at night (usually midsummer) and no one knows about it until the ear ache starts as the larve eat their way through the ear drum. I think it affects about 1/100 people...

    parasitic wasp, maybe an ichneumon

    the long extension on the abdomen is its ovipositor which it uses to lay its eggs into its host

    Oh good god. Considering my ear has felt like something is in it that I can't get to the last couple of days, and I've seen the exact insect in my house that the OP has posted a picture of, I am terrified. Can it deafen you? What do I do?!
