Several animals prey on crickets, including birds, shrews, spiders and other insects. Among the birds, robins are frequent cricket predators. Here a robin catches a cricket before he can hide in his burrow, May 2006.
Predatory bugs (Oncocephalus pilicornis) attack crickets when they are outside their burrow. They creep up on the cricket and jump on them an rapidly pierce with their tubular mouthparts. They produce a toxin that rapily kills the cricket, June 2007.
Shrews eat a lot of crickets. Because of their small size, they can partially enter the crickets' burrows and drag them out, June 2006.
Spiders frequently take over cricket burrows when they are left vacant, but attacks like this one are less common, and mainly seem to affect juvenilles, May 2012.
