SCHEDULE MY INSPECTION House crickets range from about 3/4 to 7/8 inches long and tend to be a yellow-brownish color. These creatures have two long antennas on their head. They are said to be a major problem in homes especially during the colder months. They will chew through fabrics and damage different types of cloth around your home. These pests produce lots of noise as the males chirp loudly to get the attention of females. When it comes to mating season, female house crickets lay about 728 eggs in protected areas. The eggs will hatch in late spring and the nymphs will reach the adult stage by late summer. Crickets are active at night and hide in dark warm areas during the day.

Signs of Infestation:

There won't be many signs that point to a cricket infestation, except the fact that you will see more of them around. They most often live outdoors near garbage dumps, especially during warm weather. However, when the temperatures cool down, you will start to see them coming into your homes or garages for warmth. When you have an infestation, you may start to hear the male's chirping which is also his calling song used to attract females. You may also notice an increased amount of crickets around electric lights. They are very much attracted to light and might even come around lurking in thousands. When they are inside your home, these pests tend to damage fabrics such as your carpet or clothes, leaving large holes in them.
