How to get rid of crickets?

Ensuring your home is well sealed is the primary form of defense for house crickets and field crickets. Properly sealing door sweeps, screening crawlspace vents and sealing cracks and crevices helps. Camelback crickets are defendant on high humidity levels. Installing an appropriately sized dehumidifier will help to eliminate the conditions required for this and other pests.

How do I recognize them?

Crickets come in several different species. The most common are house and field crickets which are ¾ to 7/8 in length. They are either brown or black in color. Often their telltale chirping is the only sign that they are present. A cousin, the cave or camelback cricket as they are also called, appear to be more like large jumping spiders rather than crickets. They are striped and tend to infest damp environments.

Where did I get crickets from?

House and Field Crickets often invade camelback crickets will also do this, but if humidity levels and conditions are right, they may actually breed within the basement or crawlspace. Damp undersides of decks, especially those with leaf debris often harbor these pests.

What are crickets effects on me or my home?

Crickets do not damage your home nor do they transmit any diseases. They are merely a nuisance pest. Camelback crickets are often an indicator of elevated humidity levels. These elevated humidity levels can lead to wood decay and other more destructive pests. Camelback crickets do not chirp like their cousins.
