Pests We Treat : Crickets

Crickets are a nuisance pest that can keep you awake at night with their incessant chirping. They also know to chew/eat fabric—including your clothing and blankets—and destroy paper products and pet food. While they are not harmful or dangerous to your health, they can still interrupt your daily life. In order to combat a cricket infestation, you can count on the team at My Pest Pros.

How to Identify Crickets

Crickets are characterized by their large, strong, hind legs for jumping and yellowish brown or shiny, black color. They have two sets of wings and long antennae. The most obvious sign of crickets in your home is a loud chirping noise. A cricket makes this sound by rubbing their front wings together in an attempt to attract a mate.

Since they are nocturnal, it is likely that this sound will only be present at night. They are drawn to moist or warm settings within your home or building. They are often found in basements and garages. Another sign of a cricket infestation is chewed fabric. If you see signs of a cricket infestation, don’t hesitate to contact us for cricket removal or inspection.
