Indian house crickets (Gryllodes sigillatus) are getting around. Of Asian origin, they have moved into in warm areas throughout the world, including Australia and the southwestern US. These crickets are called house crickets because of their tendency to aggregate around the foundations of houses. In some areas they also are called tropical house crickets.
This house cricket was hiding under a flower pot. They usually hide during the day and come out at night.
House crickets are normally beige with darker brown bands. Recently I found this light-colored individual. Do you think it is an albino, a case of leucism (like the bird in the post last week), or is it light-colored due to something else?
