WHERE TO FIND TREE CRICKETS

....Just about anywhere !

In OPEN FIELDS close to the ground.


Hidden amongst slender blades of SHORT GRASSES.

 Blending in amongst colorful TALL GRASSES.


Eating from FLOWERS.


  Sitting on brightly colored leafy SHRUBS.


Perched atop tall PLANTS in weedy fields.


Singing while nestled on waist-high plants.


On large leafed plants such as  SUNFLOWERS.  Look for heart-shaped holes in large leaves -- and you might find the Two-spotted Tree Cricket.


On various  types of BERRY BUSHES.























Trees or shrubs that looks remarkably like themselves -- like this
 PINE  tree cricket sitting crosswise on this branch of Japanese Yew.























Dangling overhead from draped GRAPEVINES.


High up in a FRUIT TREE.


HIGH up in trees.

While it seems you can indeed find them anywhere.... where you won't find them is on the ground or in water --- and they make only brief flights.
