Crickets are known for their obnoxious chirping, which occurs when male crickets rub their front wings together to attract females. While having some of these critters on the outside of your home can be a little annoying when they get inside your home it’s intolerable. You could spend hours just searching for where that chirping is coming from! What's more, crickets can also cause damage to clothing, carpeting, and other fabrics such as cotton, silk, wool, and synthetics. They are specially attracted to clothes soiled with perspiration.

Habitats & Habits of Crickets
When the weather is warm, crickets like to live outside, especially near garbage bins. However, during extreme heat or when the weather is cold, they often seek shelter in houses and sheds. At nighttime they are attracted to lights, and they like to sit on vertical surfaces such as house walls, fences, or light poles. During the day, they like to hide in dark, warm places, and can typically be found wherever there is clutter.
Tips for Getting Rid of Crickets
There are numerous things you can be doing to discourage crickets from living on your property, most of which just involve a little cleanup and maintenance.
