FUN FACTS ABOUT CRICKETS!!
Only male crickets produce song. They have comb-like structures (toothed areas) on their wings which produce chirping sound when male rubs its wings. Chirps are mostly used to attract females and during the mating ritual. Other than that, males can produce specific type of chirps as a sign of aggression toward other males.
Intensity of chirps depends on the temperature. Higher temperature is associated with more frequent chirps.
Most species of crickets live on the ground, but some of them live under the ground, or high on the trees.
Even though crickets have wings, they do not fly. Crickets can jump or travel short distances by producing jerky moves.
Crickets are active during the night (nocturnal creatures).
Crickets are omnivores (eat plants and other animals). Their diet includes various types of insects, fungi and plant materials.
Frogs, lizards, turtles and large spiders are main predators of crickets.
