Gryllus bimaculatus is a large cricket, which was a common find in previous years. The
cricket is easily identified by the two lighter spots on the base of the wings. The crickets
can often be located by their chirping sounds (in summer), though they generally stop as
soon as you approach one. Some thirty years back it was common practice, in villages, to
catch and place in a tin can, with slices of tomato for food, and let them chirp away
during the night.
