Schedule An Inspection

Crickets 101

Crickets that are in or around your home are about 3/4 to 7/8 inches long and are usually a yellow-brown color. You will notice their skinny legs and two long antennas on the top of their head. During the warmer months, these pests hang out outside near garbage dumps, and when the weather is colder they find their way into homes or in garages. These pests are not harmful, however, they will damage certain fabrics laying around your home. If you have an infestation, it is something that you want to get checked out right away. A female house cricket can lay 728 eggs during the winter. These eggs usually hatch in the spring and the nymphs will reach adulthood by summer. Crickets are most active during night time hours and will hide in the darker warm areas during the day.

Signs of an Infestation

A cricket infestation will be a pretty obvious one as you will begin to see more around and hear them as well. During an infestation, they will normally be outside during the warmer months but as it gets colder, they will make their way indoors. The males produce a loud chirping to get the attention of female crickets and you will hear these noises most active at night. Crickets are also attracted to light so you may see them hanging around those porch lights and they could come in the thousands. Signs of an infestation are also noticing holes in fabrics such as your carpet or clothes. These pests will chew through them causing damage and large holes.
