Green Tree Cricket or Thermometer Cricket

Green Tree Cricket or Thermometer Cricket

I don’t see these little summertime green Tree Crickets very often. They spend most of their time on plants feeding on insects. It’s been said that if you count the number of chirps you hear from this cricket at night in thirteen seconds, then add forty to it, you will get a pretty close estimate of the temperature (in Fahrenheit). So they also call this little green guy the Thermometer Cricket.
