Where have all the crickets gone this year
They are very silent, I noticed they were active like the first couple nights when it started getting warm, but now their chirps have gone silent. I live in northwest Georgia where our temps are fairly springlike. I just wondered had anyone else noticed this.

Last year here the fireflies appeared in Feb. This year, they didn't arrive until the first week in April. Our Bradford pear trees bloomed late, but went to full leaf like THAT.

No fleas yet, but that might be later in the year. Our dogs don't have quite the tick problem they usually do.

And, yes, birds singing at night, lots of them.

Re: Where have all the crickets gone this year
fascinating

There are four types of cricket song: The calling song attracts females and repels other males, and is fairly loud. The courting song is used when a female cricket is near, and is a very quiet song. An aggressive song is triggered by chemoreceptors on the antennae that detect the near presence of another male cricket and a copulatory song is produced for a brief period after a successful mating.

Re: Where have all the crickets gone this year
Crickets have relatively powerful jaws, and several species have been known to bite humans.

Better watch out dude.

Did you know that you can tell the temperature by counting the chirps of a cricket? It's true! Here's the formula:

To convert cricket chirps to degrees Fahrenheit, count number of chirps in 14 seconds then add 40 to get temperature.

Example: 30 chirps + 40 = 70° F

To convert cricket chirps to degrees Celsius, count number of chirps in 25 seconds, divide by 3, then add 4 to get temperature.

Example: 48 chirps /(divided by) 3 + 4 = 20° C

Re: Where have all the crickets gone this year
Same here - they used to make quite a noise, and there were loads of toads around - and bees - all gone or very very few now. Climate's got colder round here, also crop spraying with new pesticides that kills the good as well as the bad. This is the start of the breakdown of the food chain. Soylent Green, anyone?
As I've grown older I've learnt that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing people off is a piece of cake.

In South Dakota, no crickets, no grasshoppers, no butterflies and the birds are singing at night! I have never in my 42 years heard the song birds at night! Wood tics are more plentiful then ever.blink
