Then you get a person who smokes cigarettes and have the person blow cigarette smoke into the containers, but don’t have the cigarette person blow smoke into the control group. 5. Then record them chirping and what they are doing 1 minute before and 1 minute after. 6. Don’t get cigarette smoke in the control group

Background I am going to be writing about cigarette smoke and some causes because of cigarette smoke. Also about crickets and how you tell them a part. Plus a little bite about different kinds of crickets. Cigarette smoke effects your health. It is very serious and in many cases deadly. There are hundreds of which that is toxic.

Also preventing affected cells from carrying a full load of oxygen. crickets can live for 3 day without food and water. In my observations they can live a long time with food and water. If they don’t kill each other. Crickets are very mean to each other. There are many different kinds of crickets. Also you can tell they a part because the females have a thing coming out of them and the males don’t. Also both sexes poop a lot. There are many different kinds of crickets. For examples the Adult House crickets are is ¾ to 1 inch long. They are light yellowish brown with 3 dark bands on their heads. Next type is of cricket is the Field cricket. They are slightly longer than House crickets. Also they are dark brown, gray or black. The Field crickets prefer to live out side. They feed on plants ,will come inside if food sources dry up or there is none. The third kind of cricket is a Tree cricket. They feed on plants or other insects.
