This subterranean insect is a Mole Cricket, and though they are found underground, many species can fly quite well, and they are attracted to lights. We get identification requests from around the world for Mole Crickets, including numerous submissions from the Middle East.

The word cicada (loosely pronounced ‘Chee-Car-Dah‘ while grinning broadly) has its roots in Latin and means ‘tree cricket’ but they’re actually related to froghoppers and the like. It may come as no surprise that people do eat them. Not in Spain (we don’t think) but places like Latin America and China where they are fried.
Crickets are relatively defenceless, soft-bodied insects. Most species are nocturnal and spend the day hidden in cracks, under bark, inside curling leaves, under stones or fallen logs, in leaf litter, or in the cracks in the ground that develop in dry weather.
A Cacophony of Cicadas in Spain. Elle Draper Wildlife. For a week or two now, the noise from these cicadas has surrounded Spain Buddy Heights… but it was not until today that we managed to get close enough to take a photo of one. These really are loud, although they go silent when you approach. Noisy fella!! ©Spain Buddy.

Dried crickets can be eaten as snacks, but the majority of them are shipped to the Netherlands to be turned into flour, which is then imported back to Spain. After being mixed with Mexican corn, the flour can be turned into tortillas and chips.
The only species found in the 3 counties is House-cricket Acheta domesticus. Pale fawn, with variable dark brown markings on head, thorax, hind thighs and wings.
