Cricket Control in SoCal
Crickets rule the summer season in Southern California. Prevent them from invading your home by taking a few tips from Preferred Pest Control!
Cricket Facts and Information
The cricket is an insect related to the grasshopper and they have flat bodies with long antennae. The male cricket is the one responsible for all that chirping that you hear outside your window at night as they rub the ridges on their wings together to form a sort of instrument. Male crickets play two types of songs: one to attract females and one to repel other males (this chirp is much louder than the other). If the male succeeds in attracting a female, mating beings and the female lays eggs in the late summer to early fall. When hatched, young crickets mature in 2-3 months and require only food and safety to grow into their adult size.
Crickets feed on organic material like plants and fungi and most commonly like to live in areas with tall grass and warm climates.
Cricket Control and Maintenance
The good news is that crickets are not harmful and they do not carry diseases but they can become very bothersome when their numbers grow (especially during the summer months). To prevent a cricket population from growing around your home, maintain grassy areas by keeping them short, reduce bushes and trees around your home, and seal all cracks in windows and doors to prevent them from entering your home.
If the above methods can’t control your cricket problem, you can buy sticky traps that capture house crickets and cricket bait to also reduce their population. If your problem is beyond DIY methods, call Preferred Pest Control and we’ll sort it out for you ASAP. We will survey the area, identify the source of the problem, and introduce methods of control to exterminate crickets that have invaded your home.
