Yes, those crickets that are brownish. They get in the walls and to me are as loud as stereo, and can't turn them off! Cicadas don't get in the house, so no bother. And I haven't got used to them in 14 years, and can't tune them out!

Well, back in them good ol' days (ya know, some 5000 years ago) men had to listen for subtle sounds in lower frequency ranges to spot prey and dangerous animals and women had to attenuate their hearing to listen to the babbies (<- really obscure reference to a group of british webcasters there) which emit sound on higher frequency bands.

Nowadays we hunt for prey (gadgets) and lethal creatures (mother-in-laws) with tools like internet and dedicated ringtones...

Mine didn't object to the speakers or the wires, just the singers that she called 'Wailing Women'

We used to keep a lot of snakes, lizards & spiders.
Once dropped a carton of crickets. Had them in the woodwork for bloody ages, what a racket.
