Hear cricket sounds just like you would in nature!
Nothing says summer like the melodious chirping of crickets in the grass on a warm evening! Unlike notoriously loud and annoying insects such as cicadas, crickets play their song in a tone that is typically more tolerable or even enjoyable to the human ear. Crickets make their unique sound not with vocal cords, but rather by rubbing their wings together much like a stringed instrument being played with a bow. The cricket moves the top of one wing against the textured edge of the other wing, producing their signature noise. These bugs, which are related to grasshoppers, come in hundreds of different species, all of which have a slightly unique sound.
