Crickets are members of Orthoptera and can be distinguished from grasshoppers by the way their wings fold. Cricket’s wings are folded around the body, where the grasshopper wings are carried like a tent over the body. There are a few different types of crickets you may encounter: the House Cricket, Field Cricket, Camel Cricket, Mole Cricket, Jerusalem Cricket, and the Tree Cricket. The distinctive sound that a cricket creates is produced by repeatedly rubbing its wings together. For the most part, Crickets are nocturnal and only become active in late evenings when they begin to forage for food.
