-Junior Idiforj Quit on— INSECTS QUESTION: How doe* a cricket make its sound? ANSWER: The cricket is a small insect related to the grasshopper. The most common it the black field cricket, also called the house cricket, tl has a merry song that sounds something like "re-treat, re-treat." Only the male cricket makes the noise and he does it with his wings. When the cricket's wings are folded, they lie along his back, one over top of the other. Each wing has a thick vein with cross ridges, and a hard, sharp-edged portion. The vein is called the "file" and the other part the "scraper." The cricket makes his noise by rubbing the scraper of one wing against the file of the other wing. FOR YOU TO DO: See if you can catch a cricket, then look for his file and scraper with a magnifying glass. You will find them near the front of the wing.
