Contrary to its name, the Black-horned Tree Cricket does not dwell in trees. Rather, they are found in vegetation, sometimes close to the ground, but usually 1 – 4 feet above the ground.  Look for them on a variety of plants and weeds in brushy fields and roadsides, as well as bramble thickets, and on plants such as Goldenrod, thistles and tall grasses.
