In early spring, crickets will begin to emerge from eggs that were laid at the end of the previous summer. Although some may enjoy the subtle sound of the chirping that they do in the evening, large populations of crickets can become an unbearable nuisance that inevitably leads to the need for cricket control. This can become problematic fast because crickets reproduce quickly throughout all seasons, not just mating season.
While most crickets that make their way into homes or businesses are accidental intruders, they can create a wide variety of problems if they aren’t removed. Most often, these pests will begin feasting on items throughout the home, including leather goods, fabrics, plastics and woods. Over time, this damage can add up and result in widespread repairs or replacements of common items found inside of the structure.
Like other pests, crickets will leave piles of feces around the structure in corners or other areas that provide needed shelter from predators. Crickets are capable of carrying E.coli, salmonella and other diseases or parasites that can be transmitted through their feces. When these pests come into contact with food sources, it can lead to contamination that results in the ingestion of harmful bacteria and possibly expose yourself or others to illness.
While damages and feces are common problems associated with large populations of crickets, perhaps the most common complaint is the incessant noise they make while searching for a partner to breed with. To make matters worse, this noise is mostly audible throughout the night time when these nocturnal insects are active. If you are losing sleep because of their noise, it may be time to invest in cricket control.
