Cricket Identification and Control In Utah

Correct identification is an important first step in pest control.


Crickets are 1/2 to 1 1/8 of an inch in length. They are light brown to black in color and sometimes green. They have long threadlike antennae that are longer than their body. Crickets make a chirping noise.

Female crickets have a long stinger-like appendage coming out of the rear of their body.
