Katydids produce their songs by means of stridulation: rubbing a file-like structure of one wing against the scraper of the other to make trilling, chirping, or buzzing sounds.
Feed on leaves, stems, flowers, and fruits of a variety of plants.
Most katydids are found in grassland areas because of the types of plants found in open fields. Many species of Katydids that feed on trees are found in forests. Primarily eastern United States but ranging west into Texas over to California.
Breeding program at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.
