Crickets will hide in small crevices and cracks so depending on where they have invaded the property and how bad the infestation is, professional treatments might be required for relief.
Tips for Preventing Los Angeles Crickets
Clutter & Moisture in the Home – Crickets love a lot of clutter and also a lot of moisture. If you have piles of clutter in an area and crickets find their way inside, they will likely enjoy your clutter more than you do. Clearing out any excess clutter and ensuring proper moisture levels in areas of the property where moisture is often high (attics, basements, crawl spaces, etc) will lower your risk of a cricket invasion.
Sanitation & Landscaping – Crickets also enjoy a lot of foliage and grass and a yard makes a perfect oasis for crickets. Keeping your hedges and shrubs trimmed and using minimal mulch or ground cover can help prevent cricket problems.
Make Your Home Pest Proof – There are lots of ways the crickets could have gained entry to your home but many of these entries can easily be found if you know what to look for. Any weather stripping that is damaged or non-existent allows crickets and other insects inside. Holes in window screens is another ideal entry point and doors and windows are the key places crickets enter homes. Cracks and crevices found throughout the home could also be allowing crickets to enter but these can be sealed and fixed easily with caulk. One of our pest inspectors can help you identify potential entry areas and recommend the best method for fixing them.
