Bush-crickets attracted to moth trap
Seeing Maggie`s earlier post prompted me to do this quick note about bush-crickets attracted to moth traps. I regularly see dark bush-crickets and speckled bush-crickets in my Pwll garden and both sometimes occur in my moth traps. Recently, I had a dark bush-cricket in one of my actinics and, on Friday night, a speckled bush-cricket. I`ve also had a slender groundhopper Tetrix subulata attracted to actinic light (though this time it was perched on the adjacent wall rather than in the trap) and, at Gelli Aur Country Park, I`ve also caught oak bush-crickets in such traps.
