How does a Cricket make its Chirping Sound Crickets make their chirping sounds by rubbing their wings together. Only male crickets make this sound. They attract female crickets with it. Each of the male's wings has a rough surface on its underside called the "file." On top of each wing is a "scraper." To produce his mating call, the cricket raises his wings and rubs the scraper of one wing against the file of the opposite wing. The wings also act as sounding boards amplifying the sound. This cricket music is called stridulation. The female cricket listens with "ears" located on her front legs.
