    Crickets and grasshoppers both belong to the Orthoptera order. The Orthoptera order is divided into two distinct groups based on physical traits of the insect. Crickets belong to the suborder Ensifera and grasshoppers belong to the subgroup Caelifera. As a rule, grasshoppers have short antennae while crickets have long antennae. The auditory organs of grasshoppers (in effect, their ears) are located on the abdomen and the auditory organs of the cricket are located on the forelegs. Grasshoppers are diurnal and crickets are nocturnal, and, most distinctly, grasshoppers are solely herbivorous and crickets are predatory, omnivorous, or herbivorous.
