Crickets can attract unwanted pests

Do you lie in bed at night wishing that the chirping would stop? Does the song of crickets in your home keep you from sleeping?

While we have said crickets pose no threat to your health or contribute to property damage, they do make your home or business more vulnerable to predatory pests.

In the Phoenix Valley, crickets are a primary food source for scorpions. If you have crickets, chances are scorpions may not be far behind. Even if you enjoy the sound of crickets, these pests can put your home or business at risk.

About crickets

Crickets are nocturnal, small insects related to katydids and grasshoppers. They vary in size and color, but most crickets are brown or black and have long antennae. Some species of cricket can reach up to 2 inches in length.

Crickets are herbivores and prefer to eat plants, but they will also eat small insects and vertebrates. They are found all over the world, but they are most common in tropical and temperate climates and most active in the summer and fall months. Also, crickets do not bite but can pinch if they feel threatened.


How do you get rid of crickets?

The most effective way to get rid of crickets inside your home or business is to hire a quality pest management company that not only exterminates the pests but focuses on ensuring all exclusion points are securely sealed and access to your home or business is closed.

Are crickets dangerous?

Crickets do not pose any danger to human health or to your property. However, they do attract other predatory pests, such as scorpions.

What do crickets look like?

Crickets are small insects with long hind legs designed for jumping. They are brown to black in color, with long, thin antennae that are half the length of their head and abdomen.

How do you make a cricket shut up?

Crickets are most active in warmer temperatures, typically between 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit. The chirping sound you hear, known as stridulation, occurs when the crickets rub certain body parts together in an effort to attract a mate. If indoor crickets are making noise, try cooling them down a bit by dropping the temperature in the room with a portable air conditioner. When the temperature decreases, the chirping will likely stop.
