The long antennae (also flower cricket, lat. Oecanthus pellucens) belongs to the family of crickets. The habitat is heavily sunbathed areas with bushes and wild herbs. She also likes to stay in vineyards, from which the name is derived. The loud grilling-typical “singing” can be heard up to 50 meters away. The mated female likes to lay her eggs on pithy plant stems. The insect does not usually become a pest, because it feeds primarily on lice and insect larvae, but also on delicate parts of flowers.
