At one point in your life, you’ve gotten up from your spot on the couch, grabbed a shoe and started hunting all around the house just to eliminate that one cricket that won’t stop filling your home with its annoying chirping.
Quality Cricket Treatment
They can be found in the warmer parts of your home, such as the kitchen or the room that houses your furnace and water heater. They don’t make their way into your home on purpose. It is hard for them to survive indoors, let alone breed. They prefer to live outside and stumble into your home by jumping through an open window or door. Once inside, they will most likely make their way into any cracks they find in the house or behind any of the baseboards, making them nearly impossible to get to.

Just having one or two in your home won’t bring about any damage, but if you have noticed a large amount hiding around your home, this could lead to a number of issues because of their tendency to chew. There are two different types of crickets present here in Noblesville, Indiana; the house and the field type.
The average house type will be ¾ of an inch to one inch long. It possesses a brownish-yellow body with three dark bands on its head and wings. They will eat just about anything, including certain fabrics, paper, and even rubber.
A field type is a bit smaller than the house one, measuring between ½ an inch to ¾ of an inch long. Their bodies can be a darker brown or even black and possess a pair of curved wings. This cricket will feed on plants as well as fabrics and are especially attracted to light during the nighttime.

Tips to Prevent Crickets
- Reduce any clutter, piles of clothing, etc. to reduce the number of hiding areas for the crickets once they get inside.
- Calk/seal any and all entry points that the crickets might be able to get into, such as cracks in the foundation or windows and any cracks/holes near the doorways.
- Keeping control over the grass/weeds close to the house will also prevent the crickets from making their way into your home. Low grass = fewer hiding spots.
