Crickets are known for the noisy chorus that they make by chirping on summer evenings. This chirping noise comes from scraping motions of wings of males. They are often found in homes. Crickets are also the subject of several superstitious stories. Crickets in the house have been seen by some as a sign of good luck or a sign of death.

Crickets are exothermic creatures. This means they have no internal way of regulating their temperature. Their internal temperatures are generally very close to the environmental temperature. Since chemical reaction rates are influenced by temperature and muscular movement is accomplished through a series of chemical reactions it is reasonable that the movement of cricket wings and the corresponding chirps may be directly influenced by temperature.

Crickets are active at night and prefer dark, moist environments. Some species of crickets are attracted to lights at night. They like to inhabit vegetation and may be found under rocks, boards and other items in yards and fields. The calls of the males are intended to attract females. It is thought that the females prefer males with the longest calls. Females can distinguish between calls and move toward the males. The males tend to establish territories which they defend against other males.
