Crickets are nocturnal and will come out in search of food. They will eat anything, but especially love human food scraps and liquids. They make a distinctive chirping sound and they can damage stored clothing and textiles.
Crickets are also a major food source for scorpions and spiders. Thus, keeping them under control is very important.
Appearance and Life Cycle
Crickets are 3/4 to 1 inch in length and are light yellowish-brown in color. Normally, there are dark brown bands present on their heads.
They will deposit 40–170 eggs into cracks and crevices and behind baseboards. These eggs take about 12 weeks to hatch.
Like cockroaches in Arizona, crickets require a residual treatment on a consistent pest control service plan. This treatment will keep the cricket population under control. Because crickets are a food source for spiders and scorpions, having consistent control is critical in your overall pest management strategy.
