Camel crickets do not chirp, unlike field crickets.
Camel crickets have very poor eyesight.
Camel crickets do not bite and are not harmful to humans.
Camel crickets will bound toward perceived threats in an attempt to intimidate.
Camel crickets also can be identified by their grasshopperlike back legs and long antennae.
Camel crickets usually do not reproduce indoors. They lay their eggs in soil during spring months but can be tricked into laying their eggs in rotted wood or other material that may have the appearance of soil. Even so, indoor reproduction is most likely to occur in a greenhouse or old barn, where humidity is much higher than in your home.

Fireflies -- yes.
Crickets -- yes.
Gnarly cicada skins on the siding and trees -- yes and blech!

You're absolutely right. In Lake Grove there's an area by a pond where I noticed lots of chirping going on in the WINTER!!! I asked a homeowner and she said it's like that year round. Go figure.
