What are crickets?

Crickets are a medium to large-sized insect and are common invaders of our yards, gardens, and homes. They are related to grasshoppers and katydids. Crickets are scavengers and feed on decaying plant or animal matter.


Rounded heads, long thin antennae, and wings bent down at an angle are how people identify these pests. Other identifying features include a body flattened from top to bottom that is brown, black, or a yellowish color, and a pair of large, strong back legs used for jumping. Some crickets (not all) can “chirp.” To create the sound, males rub their front wings together.

Are crickets dangerous?

Crickets are not dangerous, but are damaging and should not live inside our homes. Crickets and their feeding habits damage our belongings by chewing holes in clothing, blankets, rugs, carpets, and more. Also, when inside your home, crickets can contaminate surfaces with bacteria and parasites they carry on their body and legs.

Crickets move inside in large numbers, are difficult to find and get rid of, and if they chirp become very annoying very quickly! These critters can also pose big problems for farmers. Large numbers of crickets living in crop fields can cause significant and costly damage.

Why do I have a cricket problem?

You are experiencing problems with crickets because your yard, gardens, and landscaped areas provide the perfect place for them to thrive. Crickets happily live outside, but if it suddenly becomes too hot and dry, they begin looking for areas of moisture and often choose our homes, garages, and sheds.

Where will I find crickets?

Since crickets prefer damp, dark areas, you’ll find them in basements, crawl spaces, closets, and under cabinets in kitchens and bathrooms after moving into a home. They like to hide out of sight in clutter, storage boxes, folded blankets, or stored clothing.
