About CricketsBrown to black in color, the cricket’s front wing varies in length, and is held flat over its body. The cricket’s hind wings are folded and hidden under its aforementioned, leathery front wings. The Antennae are about the distance from the head, to the end of the abdomen in length. One of legs on a cricket is equipped with a tympanum. The tympanum is also known as the cricket’s ear. This sound receptor is a tightly stretched membrane that allows the cricket to hear. Crickets are omnivores. These scavengers feed on decaying plant material, fungi, seedling plants, and other organic material. They are prey to spiders, some wasps, ground beetles, birds, small rodents, and lizards. They live along roadsides, in pastures, and underneath rocks and logs in meadows.
