What kind of bug is this

So I have heard a high pitched noise in my house similar to a cricket but quite sustained. I found the bug one day, and it had it's wings up, and they had holes located in the center of the wing making the noise. I finally found one today where I could get a picture, but it looks like a tiny cricket. I am unable to find any images that support this online, so I thought I would ask!

Stump removal

I had some trees cut in my yard at the end of last week. This morning I decided to get the process started for DIY stump removal. I have never tried drilling holes in a stump before but I'm thinking this might be too soon. How long should I wait before drilling holes for the potassium nitrate?
