Crickets are yellowish-brown insects with powerful legs which allow them to jump like a grasshopper. They are usually ¾” – 1” in length, and are most likely to be seen at night.

Where Do crickets Live?

As nocturnal insects, crickets look for warm, dark places to hide. They are also attracted to fabrics, such as drapes, carpets, clothing or upholstery.

Are crickets Dangerous?

Crickets often make holes in fabric, and are particularly attracted to clothing soiled with perspiration. They can damage your curtains, carpets and soft furnishings.

How Do I get Rid Of crickets?

Changing to a yellow “bug light” porch light may help, as well as trimming grass away from your foundation and ensuring wood piles are as far from the house as possible. Insect baits can be effective at controlling crickets.
