Notes

General Note:
Family: Gryllotalpidae, Order: Orthoptera. Nocturnal. Diet: Omnivore, eats larvae, worms, roots, and grass. Predators: Birds, rats, skunks, armadillos, raccoons, foxes, and blue ants. Environment: Found on all continents except Antarctica. Mole crickets are mainly considered pests, invading crop fields, golf courses, and lawns. However, they are also kept as pets. They spend most of their time burrowing elaborate underground tunnel systems. Like other crickets, mole crickets can rub their forewings together to create chirps and trills to attract mates.
