Crickets enjoy environments that are damp and warm, so they normally are found outside during the summer and inside your house or shed when colder weather hits. Crickets do not cause any danger to humans and are more of just a nuisance due to their chirping, also known as stridulation.
Crickets can grow up to 1 in. (25 mm) in length, have a black/brown body, and span over 900 species. Crickets feed on materials such as young plants, fungus, and decaying plant material. If an infestation occurs, a Miller Pest & Termite technician will come in and pinpoint vulnerable areas of your home, treating spots with rotting wood or spaces that provide warmth or heat that crickets find attractive.
