Crickets are small pests that make an obnoxious chirping noise. This noise is a mating ritual but it can also keep you awake all night as it is really loud. Crickets can get inside your home, which can be really obnoxious as they are fast and hard to catch. They love clutter so they are usually found in the basement and other places where a lot of things tend to gather. Using sticky traps, aerosol insecticides, and bait can help you capture and destroy the crickets. If nothing is working, call a Tucson pest control service to come out and handle the pest problem for you.
There are some simple steps you can take to try and control your cricket problem such as sealing up cracks around the home, placing baits near the entryways of the home, and using glue traps in dark areas where crickets love to hang out. Glue traps are safer for children so you don’t need to worry about them getting hurt from them. Placing a sugar cube in the middle of the sticky trap will easily attract them.
Even though you may think the chirping is harmless, it is being used to mate with the females and if you more crickets in your home, it won’t be long before you start to notice damage. Crickets tend to destroy textiles, furniture, and your food.
Keep your basement clean and weed the outside of the home to prevent crickets from getting into the home. The grass and weeds will retain water, which tend to make damp, dark environments for crickets. Keep your garbage sealed and in a cool, dry place because it does attract crickets. Use airtight containers to store your food so that the crickets will be unable to find it.
