Are You Hearing Cricket Sounds?

Crickets are known to be a nocturnal insect, meaning that they will be most active at night time with their loud cricket sounds. If you have ever heard a chirping outdoors when the sun has gone down, you have most likely heard a cricket’s signature chirp. Male crickets only emit this unique sound. Its purpose is to attract females for mating or to drive other males away from their territory. If you are interested in learning more about their habits, or you are dealing with an infestation, visit our cricket pest control page for more information.

Chirping Noises

Male crickets will chirp when looking to find a mate. Also warding off other males from their territory. Although female crickets cannot make noise, but they can hear through ears on their front legs. When females hear the chirp from males, they follow a behavioral pattern called “phonotaxis.” And this means that they move towards a specific sound (in this case, a male crickets’ chirp). In a large outdoor area, crickets will typically emit their sound within microseconds. So each other female cricket can tell the difference and select their mates.
