Crickets

What are Crickets?

Crickets are renowned for their excellent hopping prowess and belong to the same family as grasshoppers. These middle-sized to large insects generally dwell in gardens and other outdoor areas.

Crickets play an important role in gardens by consuming small insects and weeds, however, damage to wanted plants can occur if their population is not kept in check.

Some male species of these insects produce the well-known chirping sound. These creatures have large back legs and long antennae.

While it might not be readily apparent, some cricket species attracted mates by rubbing their wings together rather than making the trademark chirping sound.

Crickets Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are crickets dangerous?

Most cricket bites are not severe because they lack the mouthparts necessary to break through our skin; furthermore, they don't want to bite us.

Problems that crickets do cause include:

  • Feeding on houseplants and damaging them in the process.
  • Chewing on clothing, blankets, rugs, and upholstered furniture.
  • Moving into homes in large numbers.
  • Chirping can become incredibly frustrating.

Why do I have a cricket problem?

Self-preservation is one of the most significant reasons why crickets have become a problem in your home.

Typically, our homes provide these insects with cool, moist places to survive. When the weather outside becomes too hot and dry or too chilly, they will seek better living conditions indoors.

In yards, forests, and gardens, crickets reside, giving them easy access to homes and other structures.

They will enter through gaps in the foundation, cracks around pipes and vents, and any other openings surrounding objects that pass through the outside walls of your home.

Where will I find crickets?

Basements appear to be the preferred location for crickets seeking shelter. Cellars provide insects with a cool, damp habitat, food (other insects that are lurking in your basement), and places to hide.

However, crickets can also infect buildings without basements. In addition to crawl spaces, under sinks, laundry rooms, and bathroom closets, crickets inhabit crawl spaces, laundry rooms, and bathroom closets.
