PURCOR Pest Solutions can help protect your home and your family with our effective cricket control and prevention services.
Crickets are commonly associated with summer, but when the weather gets cooler and crickets begin to make their way inside, they become more of a nuisance. A cricket’s nocturnal chirping often keeps homeowners awake at all hours of the night and will occasionally feast on fabrics. But crickets can lead to bigger problems, as their presence inside can attract more dangerous pests, such as spiders, that primarily feast on crickets.

Identifying Crickets in Your Home
If you have crickets in your home, you’ll have no problem identifying them. Homeowners dealing with crickets often complain of being kept up by their nighttime chirping. These insects also love moisture and are commonly found in basements, crawlspaces, and laundry rooms. Another telltale sign of a cricket invasion is the evidence of their sandy-looking excrement around the home, which might also be mistaken for termites.
Prevent Crickets in Your Home
To prevent crickets from invading your home, be sure to seal any cracks or openings where crickets could enter. Some access points these chirping pests may use are windows, doors, and cracks in the foundation.
Keeping your lawn manicured is also important to eliminating environments where crickets may hide outdoors. Make sure to keep your grass cut short and firewood away from the house, as these can be breeding grounds for crickets. Additionally, keeping bushes and trees trimmed back from the house can keep crickets from using the limbs as a way to access your home.
You can also reduce the number of crickets around your home by replacing your outdoor lights with yellow bulbs, which are less attractive to crickets and other outdoor pests.
