If you live in South Central Texas for any length of time, you will experience and have many memories of ….. crickets.
The insects. Cricket invasions that are loud and, it seems at the time, never-ending. Right now the city of San Antonio is under siege. Has been for several days. We’ve got the pics for you HERE.
In my experience, grasshoppers are pretty light on their feet; not so, crickets. They come in like hail stones, loud bangs on your windows, walls and then that nasty crunch when you have to walk over them. They just don’t more very fast. Nothing like seeing a moving sidewalk or wall of insects. And, I’m sorry to say, they don’t smell very good either and yes, they are loud.
All sympathies to the folk in San Antonio.
