Crickets Control

Crickets can be bothersome and destructive pests when they manage to get indoors. Aside from their loud chirps, these insects can feed on anything they get their hands on. From clothes, wallpaper, and even wood, crickets can devour almost any tangible item in a typical household. In addition, crickets can also “hop” and find their way into your food pantries and kitchens. Another big problem crickets can bring into the picture is when female crickets leave behind their eggs. To hundreds, even thousands, of cricket eggs could potentially be all over your house. These tiny eggs take about a year to hatch and they are almost impossible to detect.

How to Get Rid of Crickets

Damages caused by crickets can cause a lot of inconvenience in your life. Have you ever found clothes or furniture destroyed by crickets? Let me tell you, it can be a depressing time especially when you have recently bought or repaired these items. Compared to other pest problems, getting rid of crickets in your house is quite simple. There are several cricket control products listed below that will assist you in getting rid of these pests. We recommend using poisons and/or baits when wanting to eradicate crickets indoors.

Cricket Control Products

  • Cricket Granular Bait
    Cricket bait is a more passive method in getting rid of crickets. Simply place the baits near the areas where crickets were/are seen. Cricket bait is only for crickets. Keep your children and pets away from the applied area.
  • Cricket Liquid/Spray Pesticides
    Equipped with chemicals catering to cricket control, spray the application in places where you see cricket infestations. Be careful when applying due to human-harmful chemicals.
  • Cricket Traps
    Traps are another great way of getting rid of your cricket problem. Cricket traps are best used outdoors for indoor prevention. Suggested places for traps: near windows, doors, and small crevices.
  • Cricket Dust Pesticides
    Use dust pesticides in voids/crevices where crickets may be nesting. Dust pesticides are a necessary mean if the population has access to cool damp areas such as crawl spaces. Crickets mate, lay eggs, and feed in these areas. Thus, treating inside and outside of crawl spaces will sustain their population growth.

Cricket Killer

In addition to cricket pesticides, make sure that you thoroughly clean your house. This can help ensure whether or not your control applications are working and could possibly recover areas that were initially forgotten. To ensure anymore crickets from finding their way into your home and into your closets, you must make your home "cricket-proof." Block off every point of entry that may be used by crickets.

First, seal all the cracks and known crevices along your walls, doors, windows and air vents. If the areas cannot be sealed off, you can try to use screens, cloths, basically anything that could potentially block off crickets from getting within your home. Crickets love plants. If you have a garden of plants around your house, keep them trimmed. Moreover, make sure your plants and grasses are at least 40 inches away from the walls of your home. Crickets typically gather near walls where plants are abundant. If not treated, they may consume through your walls to get inside. If you have a lot of stuff in your garage or in your garden, you should discard or clean it out as soon as possible. Debris and abundant sources of junk is where crickets usually congregate and create their nests. Therefore, be sure to clean these areas. In addition, other debris source are often gathered in drains and roof gutters where thousands of cricket eggs are normally found. Be sure to clean out these areas as often as you can.

Q. Cave Crickets,black spiders,more Bugs!
We have bugs, mostly outside invaders as the weather warms up. Beetles, spiders, the occasional scorpion etc. and what we call \"Cave Crickets\" - a speckled brown cricket that lurks ominously around our HVAC system in the basement and occasionally escapes into the house. I think someone said they are camel crickets? When they are small they are a nuisance but the really big ones move real slow and creepy, like they are plotting... ;-) They can get really big. The women are HORRIFIED of the big ones more than the spiders. What's really bugging me is I bought one of those pest control one time use bottle of concentrate (Bengal?) and the spiders seem to be RIOTING (I think they are in a union). Big black jumping looking ones and we think we imported a black wolf type from Jacksonville, Fl when we moved. The black spiders seem to now favor the ceilings. Not sure if the hardware store treatment in running them up there, or do you think they are entering thru the attic? We don't have roaches or fleas. House is clean, landscaping clear of the house and bushes trimmed away regularly. I'm obsessed with vacuuming... No trees near or overhanging the house, but we live in the middle of the woods in North Georgia. 1. Would Demon WP be a good place to start? I was thinking a 2 packet knockdown treatment outside of the foundation, basement, and inside on the baseboards etc. 2. Do I need to get granules for the perimeter of the house? I want something that WORKS. Not something that gradually poisons them like nuclear fallout,;-) No more bug hostages. Help...
A.   For treatment of crickets along with other insects, we recommend using Suspend SC. This liquid concentrate is used to treat surfaces, especially around the door, window frames, etc. Suspend SC has a residual time of 3-4 months so you only need to make about 3-4 applications a year.

Q. Crickets at my backyard
I recently moved to a condo, which the backtard of several unit is connected and separated by a fence. I would like to ask what kind of solution you would recommand to get rid of crickets at the yard. Not sure if neighbors having the same problem but I tried to use some insect sprays for yard (those are friendly to my plants) but I think they can jump to next door and come back again. :(
A.   First and foremost, do you or your neighbor have pets or children? Also, what sort of plants are they (ornamental, vegetable garden, fruit plants, etc.)? If you have ornamental plants and can keep children and pets off the treated areas until those locations have completely dried, we recommend using Suspend SC. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. I have a cricket(s) living in between the dry wall that covers our cinder block walls in our basement. How do I kill cricket?
A.   Treating crickets living in between the dry wall can be difficult because you do not have direct access to the area of infestation. If you could first determine the entrance hole, treatment may be easier because you will be able to dust with an insecticide around the active entrance hole. I would recommend dusting with a product like Delta Dust.

A.   If you know where the holes are in which the crickets are entering from, we would recommend puffing Delta Dust inside those cracks.

Q. insects, what do i need to combat?
sir, i have a lot of these in my basement, what can i use to get rid of them?
A.   From the picture it seems to be crickets. Since the crickets are foraging indoors from outside you must treat around the outer perimeter of your home.

Demon WP would be a highly recommended product for such treatment.

It contains a residual time of about 2-3 months, therefore it will continue to be effective for that given amount of time.
