How do crickets make their noise?



  1. 0 Votes

    Male crickets rub their wings together to attract female crickets, and the result is the “chirping” noise we hear. Male crickets are equipped with their own built-in fiddle system, and both male and females have their “ears” in their front legs below the knee. Each of the male’s wings has a rough surface on its underside — the file. In the same place on top of each wing is a scraper. The cricket rubs the scraper of either wing against the file of the other to make his music, or his mating call. This cricket music is called stridulation.

    To produce the chirping noise, male crickets will rub its legs together to try and attract female crickets. Male crickets come complete with their own fiddle system, and have a rough surface (the file) underneath its wing. On the tops of its wings is a scraper, it rubs the scraper of either wing against the file. These cricket songs are called stridulation.

    Crickets chirp by rubbing their wings together. Male crickets do so to attract female crickets. They have a rough surface on the underside of the wing, the file, which rubs against a scraper on the top of each wing. This mating call is called a stridulation. They are nocturnal animals and the warmer the weather, the more a cricket sings. It is oftentimes difficult to track a cricket because of their chirping, they can make it seem as if they are making noise in a distant place from where they are.
