This common name refers to only one order.

Insect Order Orthoptera

These are pretty much always called Grasshoppers and Crickets.
Grasshoppers and crickets are terrestrial (Terrestrial: Insects which live on land and are fed on by trout only when they incidentally fall into the water are known as "terrestrials" to fly anglers, and they're very important in late summer.) insects--the only part of their life cycle spent (Spent: The wing position of many aquatic insects when they fall on the water after mating. The wings of both sides lay flat on the water. The word may be used to describe insects with their wings in that position, as well as the position itself.) in the water is the "oops" stage. Grasshoppers are most important to the trout, but crickets may fall into streams as well.
