What is a house cricket?
House crickets are typically found inside and around your house. These insects can grow to be 2cm in length when they reach adulthood. They are mainly a light brown color and have a few stripes on their head. Additionally, they have sleek like looking antennas and wings that remain close to their body.
For the many reasons other insects invade your home, these crickets come in for the same reason. They are trying to find food and water. A lot of crickets are attracted to pet food, as well as, lettuce, or fruits. Therefore, if you find yourself with a house cricket infestation be sure to keep these items stored away where any insects can’t reach them. A couple of these crickets can easily become a vast amount since they reproduce quickly so if you see a couple of crickets contact Drake Lawn & Pest Control immediately so we can handle your problem effectively.

Crickets are more of a nuisance than anything else. They spend their days mostly burrowing beneath stones, under piles of dirt, logs, or plants. At night is when they are most active, and the male’s chirp can become extremely loud. Depending on the air temperature will dictate the crickets chirping rates; usually the warmer it is, the louder the chirping will be.
Some of the best methods to get rid of crickets are:
• Reduce the moisture in areas around your home.
• Move any woodpiles away from structures.
• Consistently mow your lawn and keep your plants trimmed.
