Nope, not a whole lotta crickets where I reside. I do get a few in the garage, but that really sums it up.

Got my fingers & toes all crossed!

By the way, I tend to perceived that the Spring, Summer, & Falls on LI are always too short while the Winters seem to be getting longer ~ almost like 6 true seasons instead of 4? As in something like Spring, Summer, Fall, Locking, Winter, Unlocking ...

& the following thoughtview on the butterflies is based more on a sortof 'karmic imagining' than on anything else ~ however I like to think all of my neighbor's nurturings (including providing the environments & the freeings) when he was a child have returned to thank him.

As with the Cicadas, so with the Crickets, tend not to notice unless prevalent, & then it's their noises that make me notice ~ as LICenter noted ~ not so much here on LI.

I am in Houston, and am landscaping a house I recently bought. The plants I am using include Butterfly Weed (Milkweed), specifically for the monarchs. Ever since I bought the plants, I have had monarchs, their caterpillars, and associated (harmless) bugs on these plants. I am trying to do my part, and enjoying it!

Also, I have been seeing lots of cicada carcasses around the house.
