Those insects are called "rainbirds" here at Lake Chapala because they start their loud noise just before the rains arrive, thus "predicting" the start of the rainy season. I have been told they are a kind of cicada and the loud noise is their mating call.

The cicadas ( rainbirds)s sing in the heat so I do not think you can hear them at night, in the evening yes but not at night.. but then they are crikets types frogs lizzards that all make sound as well..The monstrous sound I have never heard nor have I heard something that sounds like a jackhammer..
