Cricket Pest Control: How to Get Rid of Crickets

As temperatures cool down, many of us tend to spend a lot of time outdoors, especially in our patio and backyard areas. It’s also the same time of year when we begin to notice more bugs are out, especially crickets. You may hear them chirping before you see them. It’s a pleasant sound when it’s outside, but if they get in your home, that noise can be downright annoying!

Where Do Crickets Come From?

Crickets thrive in a number of outdoor landscapes, and they also like coming into your home and feeding on anything from bread crumbs to your best suits and sweaters! Their favorite thing to eat is rotting plant matter – citrus that fell from your tree and hasn’t been picked up, weeds that are dying, and any other rotting vegetation.

Crickets often enter houses to escape from either the extreme heat or extreme cold.

These pesky insects are nocturnal and usually hide in dark, warm places during the day.

They can commonly be found wherever there is clutter.

The kind typically found indoors can live 2-3 months, but only a couple of weeks once they're old enough to start their "chirping."
