Crickets are known for their chirp (which only male crickets can do; male wings have ridges that act like a "comb and file" instrument). They chirp by rubbing their wings or legs over each other, and the song is species-specific. There are two types of cricket songs: a calling song and a courting song. The calling song attracts females and repels other males, and is fairly loud. The courting song is used when a female cricket is near, and is a very quiet song. Female crickets have a long needlelike egg-laying organ (ovipositor).

Crickets chirp at different rates depending both on their species and the temperature of their environment. Most species chirp at higher rates the higher the temperature is (approx. 60 chirps a minute at 13ºC).

There are about 900 known species of cricket, worldwide. The cricket tends to be nocturnal and is often confused with grasshoppers (which are related, but not the same), because they have a similar body structure including jumping hind legs.

In 1970, Dr. William H. Cade discovered that the parasitic fly Ormia ochracea is also attracted to the song of the male, and uses it to locate the male in order to deposit her young on him. It was the first example of a natural enemy that locates its host or prey using the mating signal. Since then, many species of crickets have been found to be carrying the same parasitic fly around the world.

Crickets are popular pets and considered good luck in Asia, especially China. It is also common to have them as pets in appropriate cages in some European countries, at least in the Iberian Peninsula. They may also be eaten in some cultures.

Taxonomy

Subfamilies of the family Gryllidae:

  • Acheta domestica — House crickets
  • Eneopterinae — Bush crickets
  • Gryllinae — Common or field crickets; brown or black; despite the name, some of them enter houses.
  • Mogoplistinae — Scaly crickets
  • Myrmecophilinae — Ant crickets
  • Nemobiinae — Ground crickets
  • Oecanthinae — Tree crickets; usually green with broad, transparent wings; frequent trees and shrubs.
  • Pentacentrinae — Anomalous crickets
  • Trigonidiinae — Sword-tail crickets

In addition to the above subfamilies in the family Gryllidae, several other orthopteran groups outside of this family also may be called "crickets":

  • Mole crickets
  • Katydids
  • Cave Crickets (also called camel crickets)
  • Sand crickets
