A distribution map of the Fall Field Cricket shows a broad U shape from NC down through the southern coastal states, Texas and upwards to CA where they do not occur. They do inhabit north of this area with a heavier concentration in the mid west and eastern states.
Fall Field Crickets live in a wide variety of habitats such as grassy areas, beneath rocks or other objects, and clay badlands. They also inhabit cracks and crevices around homes and other buildings. They will not survive the winter outside so as cold approaches they often seek the warmth inside these buildings.
Fall Field Crickets overwinter in the egg stage, hatch in spring, and adults are most commonly seen late summer and fall in most regions.
