Camel Cricket Census

Main Project Information
Goal Help scientists understand the camel crickets in your house!
Task Share observations of camel crickets in your home!
Where Global, anywhere on the planet

The Your Wild Life team needs citizen scientists to share observations and photos of camel crickets in your home!

To date, their network of keen citizen observers has reported a preponderance of camel crickets in their basements, garages and garden sheds. Some interesting patterns in cricket distribution have emerged, and the researchers have learned that a Japanese camel cricket is way more common in the US than previously thought.
