CricketCrickets live under rocks and logs in meadows, pastures and along roadsides. To attract mates, males produce a sound made by rubbing their forewings against each other. The resulting chirping sound is picked up by the female's ears on her front legs. The chirp sounds are different for each species so that individuals can find their own species.
