Pest Description

Cricket Behavior

Crickets are omnivorous, and will take advantage of almost any plant or animal protein available. Any area, outdoor or indoor, that provides food will find a willing cricket soon enough. Crickets resemble grasshoppers, but the chirp of a cricket is higher in pitch.

Problems Caused by Crickets

Crickets do not bite, are not poisonous, and do not carry diseases, but their chirp is what makes them such a unique pest. Even one cricket can disturb the silence and peace of a building, but an infestation can destroy that peace entirely. Females can lay up to 200 eggs at a time. If left untreated, cricket infestations can grow quickly.

Preventing Crickets

If crickets are able to identify food sources and/or potential mating partners in close proximity to a building, preventing crickets becomes more difficult. The best way to stop crickets from disturbing a building is to remove all potential food sources, maintain cleanliness, and remove any existing crickets.

Eliminating and Controlling Crickets

Crickets may establish their nests in hard to reach areas of a house or dwelling. The best way to eliminate crickets and prevent future problems is through professional help. At Pest Control Inc, our pest control professionals resolve cricket infestations using a variety of different treatment techniques, using our knowledge of crickets and their behavior.
