If you believe that crickets are vegetarians, you would only be part right. The main part of a cricket’s diet is greens, including fresh seedlings, garden fresh fruits, tomatoes, and has even at times been the cause of whole fields being destroyed. This latter destruction is usually attributed to grasshoppers, but crickets have been known to reap similar damage to fields during dry spells, causing large groups to travel together in search of food. If left unchecked in houses, especially in large numbers, they will cause damage to clothing and other fabrics. They also have been known to feed on other insects, as in the smaller ones that live among ants.
