Pulsing Cricket Chirps

The serene landscape suffers no slight disturbance from the sweet sounds of these little insects calling through the night. Their ancient bellows casting sensations of primal sexuality along the soft grasses, as mates attempt to encounter one another under the full moon. You too can conjure up the essence of animalism that courses through the midnight masquerade in this heavenly field beneath the stars. The sound emitted by cricket is commonly referred to as chirping; the scientific name is stridulation. Only the male crickets chirp. The sound is emitted by the stridulatory organ, a large vein running along the bottom of each wing, covered with "teeth" (serration) much like a comb does. The chirping sound is created by running the top of one wing along the teeth at the bottom of the other wing. As he does this, the cricket also holds the wings up and open, so that the wing membranes can act as acoustical sails. It is a popular myth that the cricket chirps by rubbing its legs together.
