Crickets

Where They Live

underneath rocks, tall grasses, leaves, debris, and logs.

About the Pest:

Crickets seldom cause damage to Utah structures because they rarely infest a home, but they eat almost anything and can destroy fabrics and paper. Male crickets produce a chirping that can be very annoying. Crickets are nocturnal, and therefore, are more active at night.

How to Control:

Crickets are attracted to light. Turn off unused lights at night to help keep crickets out. A wide sprayed insecticide barricade around the house perimeter will also do a good job keeping them out.
