    In this segment of On Location, Coyote finds an elusive Mole Cricket!

    Have you ever wondered what insects are making all that loud screeching at night? Well to find out usually all you need to do is grab a simple flashlight and follow the sound until you find the little screamer. However sometimes you can be looking right at the source of the noise and see nothing at all…how can this be?

    Well in these rare instances what you’ve usually stumbled upon is a chirping Mole Cricket, and just like the name suggests these crickets are diggers and live most of their lives underground and out of sight.

    Coyote’s goal on this adventure will be to find an exposed Mole Cricket and try a little experiment to show you just how well these subterranean insects can burrow!

    Get ready to see the Cricket you never knew existed!

    I caught one of these as a child in our yard when I was maybe, idk, 9 or 10 years old? We bought a lil' hourglass-shaped plastic bug house from Wal-Mart and it made a lil' burrow in the bottom half full of dirt. I took it to school for show and tell the next week and it was huge hit amoung my classmates. Very interesting lil' creature.

    Oddly enough, I have seen a mole cricket before. I was on spring break in Myrtle Beach with my family and a female landed on me and started trying to burrow on my arm. Wasn't particularly pleasant. They are not a personal favorite because I had no clue what it was at the time until after the fact when I looked them up, and I screamed like a banshee outside the restaurant when it happened.
