  Study organisms. Oecanthus tree crickets (Gryllidae) are common in meadows of east and central North America (Capinera et al. ).In the area where this study took place, O. nigricornis are univoltine, and adults emerge in late July and persist approximately until frost arrives in October. They are typically found in open meadows with Solidago spp., Rubus spp., and Daucus spp., as males use Author: Kyla Ercit. Different-horned tree crickets often sing from higher perches than is characteristic of the other members of the broad-winged species group of Oecanthus.

A female Black-horned Tree Cricket oviposited eggs into this stem from a Chrysanthemum plant. She first chews at the spot where she wants to insert an egg. Then she moves up the stem until the tip of her ovipositor can be inserted into the exposed spot on the stem.

Tree cricket information with photos and videos. Includes: Species, Locations, Behaviors, Song Analysis, Calling males, History and Life Cycle. Photos and videos of species found within the U.S. General information on species found throughout the world. Links to important websites. This website has been developed to increase awareness of these fascinating little creatures.   Males generally take the initiative to court mates, and females closely inspect the courtship of their suitors to pick those that offer the most benefits.
