Sound Production in Mole Crickets (Orthoptera: Gryllotalpidae: Scapteriscus),,
TLDR
Regression analysis of the weather factors on the different parameters of calling songs revealed that the pulse rates of acletus and vicinus are functions of soil temperature.
Mole Crickets: Ecology, Behavior, and Dispersal Flight (Orthoptera: Gryllotalpidae: Scapteriscus )
TLDR
Monitoring of flying acletus and vicinus in Gainesville, Fla, proved that at least 2% of adults fly more than once, and about 28 times more mole crickets were collected during the spring flight than during the fall flight.
Phonotaxis of Crickets in Flight: Attraction of Male and Female Crickets to Male Calling Songs
TLDR
Large numbers of two species of mole crickets flew to loudspeakers playing the appropriate calling song outdoors, and mice of three other subfamilies were trapped as they flew to mole cricket songs resembling their own.
Response of flying mole crickets to three parameters of synthetic songs broadcast outdoors
LARGE numbers of flying crickets can be attracted to outdoor loudspeakers broadcasting male calling songs1. Consequently we have been able to investigate the features of calling songs that are
Persistence of Radiophosphorus in Desert Locust, Schistocerca Gregaria (Orthoptera: Acrididae)
TLDR
When female adult desert locusts ingested 1 mCi of carrier free radiophosphorus through cabbage leaves, the radioph phosphorus was detected in their eggs, and the radioactivity persisted into the fourth and fifth instar of first generation locUSTs.
