What Are Crickets?

Crickets are closely related to grasshoppers. Their name comes from the French word criquet,' which refers to the sound they make when courting.

Where cockroaches are low and wide, crickets have a tall profile. They have medium-length antennae that arch above their heads and large back legs that they use to jump considerable distances for their size.
