You’re welcome, Tamara. I think people associate crickets with night and grasshoppers with day hence the “mix up” with names.

Do you know if this one makes a sound or call at night?

Well, I associate crickets with seaside, they re quite noisy there. And I do associate grasshoppers with lawn around our home. I shall find out more about sounds this little one makes, I will let you know. But as far as I understand the key sounds and calls around our house come from birds, bees, frogs, we have a toad or two, and some neighbor dogs and cats …

The green grasshoppers with long antennae are sometimes called tree crickets. They do spend a lot of time in trees and lay their eggs in the bark. I hear them calling on warm summer nights. The call is very much unlike the regular brown and black crickets.
