House Crickets

 Cricket Elimination

Adult house crickets are 3/4-1 inch long, light yellowish-brown with 3 dark bands on the head. They will eat almost anything, often causing damage to woolens and silk. Crickets are nocturnal, hiding during the daytime but becoming active and vocal during the night. The "song" or chirping sound of the house cricket is welcome anywhere except in structures. Crickets can be found in basements, crawlspaces, kitchens, fireplaces, behind appliances, behind baseboards and other cracks, crevices and wall voids.


Field Crickets

Top of Page    Cricket Elimination

This cricket is slightly longer than the House Cricket and is dark brown to gray or black. They prefer to live outside, feeding on plants, but will come inside if food sources dry up or there or unfavorable extremes in temperatures.


Camel Crickets

Top of Page    Cricket Elimination

This cricket is also known as a hump-back cricket due to it's hump-back appearance. They are light to dark brown, about 1/2 -1 1/2 inch long.  Their diet is almost anything but will feed on clothes.  Most often are found in crawl spaces and basements, but also like any cool and damp area like under logs or stones.  Treat as you would the House Cricket, but pay particular attention to crawl spaces and basements.

Cricket elimination is best accomplished by combining a good residual spray with a professional bait.  Spray is to be used indoors and outdoors, baits are placed in hiding places where sprays cannot be used but where crickets can be found.  Baits can also be used outdoors.
KEEP SPRAYS AND CRICKET BAITS SEPARATED to avoid bait contamination.  If you must spray close to areas where you intend on using a cricket bait, use a non-repellent insecticide such as Dominion

Odorless insecticide spray products such as Cyper WP, Cyzmic CS or D-Fense SC are best for long term control.   Choose the size or formulation that best suits you.  Spray outdoors around windows, doors, vents, weep holes, plumbing lines or other possible entry points.   You also need to spray a band around the structure, three feet high and to the ground (on your exterior walls) as well as a six foot swath on the ground.  This will create a barrier that not only kills existing crickets and other insect pests but also prevents outdoor bugs from becoming indoor pests.  To help eliminate crickets from attics, basements or cracks and crevices, Maxforce Complete Bait or Intice Perimeter Bait are recommended.

If you do not feel comfortable using a spray, you should use one of the granular baits around the outside perimeter of your home and also apply the bait to cracks and crevices indoors, attics, basements, crawlspaces and other hiding places.  Simply: place cricket bait (insect baits) in areas of high cricket activity or suspected cricket hiding places.
