Do crickets pollinate plants?

    Generally, no. But you’ve got very good timing with the question, as a recent news article describes a newly discovered species of crickets that pollinates. It was captured on a motion-sensitive camera during pollination of an orchid on the Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean. So you can say it’s rather an exception than a rule.

    It has recently been discovered that at least one species does. Researchers were recently able to observe and film a raspy cricket transferring pollen from one flower of an orchid to another flower’s female organs. The cricket takes the ecological place of a moth that pollinates similar orchids, but is not present where this species lives.
