I Want Crickets
I live in a dense area of Brooklyn. For years I have missed the seductive hum of crickets, as lulled me to sleep in the countryside of my childhood.
Tonight during a long walk I heard a surprising hum emanating from a lawn: Yes, the joyful cry of a cricket. I really had not considered they could live in these environs. But as I now know all things are possible, I would like to introduce them to my garden.
The internet, for once, has not proved helpful. While many people are putting a death wish on crickets, I cannot find information on fostering them. This has also led me to wonder if there is any risk in trying to bring them to my block?
If not, the only place that provides this insect seems to be a pet supply store. Does anyone know if this would be the desired breed? Thank you in advance--
