Like the Phantom of the Opera, Orthoptera enchant us with their mysterious music. Akin to the infamous Opera Ghost, they leave much to the imagination, hiding just out of sight, singing boldly—or imperceptibly—to attract love.

Fortunately, scientists can monitor these and other very real (and fragile) stridulators with bioacoustics. So, what have they learned? And what are some conservation applications—and tips—for acoustic monitoring of Orthoptera?
