Are noisy crickets driving you crazy, invading your lawn year after year? You are not alone. Homeowners across the southwest region have to deal with annoying high-pitched cricket sounds every year. But there is hope, crickets can be controlled by a professional pest control service. It is possible to enjoy peaceful quiet days and nights again, cricket-free.

Crickets prefer the outdoors where it is dark and moist, but they sometimes come indoors when the weather is too dry, hot, or cold. They sneak into homes through crevices in foundations or gaps around doors. Once indoors, they are drawn to rooms that are warm and damp, such as laundry rooms, closets, wall voids, and basements. They will usually eat insects, alive or dead. However, they will also eat fabrics which can make holes in clothing, curtains, bedding, and upholstered furniture. Crickets are not considered dangerous to humans physically and they do not pose a health risk.

Have you had enough of crickets invading your lawn and home? Tired of them keeping you awake at night and the damage they have done to your fabrics? Start by following a few general preventative practices to avoid a cricket invasion:

  • Caulking cracks and crevices in your home's foundation.

  • Installing door sweeps.

  • Repairing damaged window and door screens.

  • Keeping your home dry by fixing leaks promptly and by using dehumidifiers.

Do you want to try to get rid of crickets yourself? Most DIY cricket control methods are costly, time-consuming, messy, difficult to use, and they can be dangerous to you, your family, and your pets. Not to mention DIY methods are often ineffective and do not get to the root of the problem. In the end, if you are still bothered by an overabundance of crickets every spring and summer, you need professional pest control.
