Habitat of the Snowy Tree Cricket includes shrubbery, plants, and vines around houses, unsprayed fruit trees, tangles of vines and trees at edges of clearings, and along neglected fence rows.  They are found on wide variety of trees, including broadleaved trees, especially scrubby oaks.

Other common names for Snowy Tree Cricket are Fulton’s Tree Cricket and Thermometer Cricket (because the rate of its easily countable chirps correlates well with the temperature at the cricket).
