I. Examples to distinguish insect sounds from background noise:
Not all extraneous sounds can be distinguished from insects as easily as in I.1-I7 below, but the human ear can be trained to distinguish the typical clicking and slipping noises of subterranean insects from the drones of machinery or incidental wind noise. Here are some examples you can try for yourself.
I.1. Insect sounds mixed with plane noise, recorded from underground microphone in a field at Auburn, AL. [1.4kB, 30 s]This lively site contained 6 tenebrionids, 2 millipedes, 2 earthworms, 1 wireworm, 1 armyworm, a mature cydnid, and an immature cydnid. (Recorded by Jamie Brandhorst-Hubbard with a soil microphone). For reference, see [172 kB].I.2. Insect sounds mixed with plane noise, shorter segment of I.1. [733 kB ,15 s]
I.3. Plane noise recorded with accelerometer on nail inside a pot at the Monrovia nursery, Dayton, OR. [733 kB, 15 s]I.4. Plane and truck noise at commercial nursery. (See I.3). [733 kB, 15 s](For reference see black vine weevil sounds).
I.5. Truck noise recorded in a pot containing black vine weevil larvae. (See I.3). [733 kB, 15 s]
I.6. Wind noise and backgroundrecorded from an accelerometer on a nail inserted into a field at Oregon State University. (see I.3). [733 kB, 15 s]I.7. Wind noise and backgroundrecorded from an accelerometer on nail inside a pot containing black vine weevil larvae. (see I.3). [733 kB, 15 s]
