Hi,
Here's a tip: Achetus domesticus do not stridulate by rubbing their legs together (a common misconseption); rather, the shrill sound is produced by the males via rubbing the "wings" together. Therefore, locate the males and feed them first, you can identify the males by the "wings" and lack of an ovipositor (click the link to see the pic).
Cheers,
R
