The British Library’s sound archive has 1,949 catalogued recordings of invertebrates (with many more from the London Natural History Museum about to be added) nearly all of which are insects though only a few actual recordings are online. 


The Borror Lab of Bioacoustics also has a good insect collection especially from USA.

The Natural History Museum in London has been contributing sound files to Bioacoustica, which can be accessed at <>.  It is not dedicated to Insecta but insects do comprise a significant portion of the archive.
Hope this is useful,

The few I found until now are: (with related links to other cicada's sites)

do you know other relevant sound libraries with inspect sounds ?
