The Pine Tree Cricket is found particularly on White Pine and other pines, but also inhabit other conifers including Cedar, Juniper, Blue Spruce, Black Spruce and Japanese Yew. This cricket can be difficult to spot not only because it resides high up in the tree crown, but also because its brown anterior and green forewings serve as camouflage.
Adults of the Pine Tree Cricket first seen mid June in the south, early August in the north. In northern localities calling lasts until frost, but it may end earlier in the south.
