BE PREPARED for a noisy summer.
The loudest insect in the world has arrived at Stratford Butterfly Farm.
The giant long legged Katydid, also known as a bush cricket, can be heard from more than 200 metres away.
The rare species, native to Malaysia, gets its name from the sound it makes – quite literally sounding like ‘Katy-did, Katy-didn’t’.
The sound it emits is to attract a mate.
The Swan’s Nest Lane attraction is also home to Madagascan hissing cockroaches, stick insects, hermit crabs, giant land snails and African millipedes.
