This species occurs throughout the grasslands ecosystem across the central United States. It is always associated with trees in the grassland environments, often being found in riparian habitats  Sanborn & Phillips (2013) found it associated with willow (Salix spp.) and cottonwoods (Populus spp.), as previously reported, but also with ornamentals and nut trees in orchards. It has also been reported in high concentrations in introduced salt cedar (Tamarix ramosissima Ledebour). (Sanborn & Phillips 2015)
