Jamaican field cricket, Gryllus assimilis (Fabricius, 1775) (Orthoptera: Gryllidae) is distributed throughout the Caribbean and southern USA. Like other crickets, this species can be viewed as a pest for entering homes and producing a loud mating call that can be quite annoying. This hemimetabolous (incomplete metamorphosis: egg, nymph, adult) can be easily mass-produced in colony and harvested for use as a food or feed product.
