Cricket (insect)

Cricket (insect), common name for insects of a family known for the chirping courtship call of the male. The male produces the call by rubbing a internal linkgrooved ridge on the underside of one of his front wings against the sharp edge of the other front wing. The call, which is distinctive in each species, is used to attract the female and drive away competing males. True crickets include the familiar black field cricket (genus Gryllus) and the house cricket (Acheta domesticus). Crickets have long internal linkantennae and hind legs adapted for jumping; organs for hearing are located on their front legs. During daylight hours, crickets remain hidden, but at night they emerge to feed on plants.
Scientific classification: True crickets make up the family Gryllidae in the order Orthoptera, which also includes grasshoppers and katydids.
