cricket pest control Crickets are one of the more common insects that a Phoenix exterminator will see during pest control services. Phoenix is home to over 11,000 unique desert insects and several types/species of crickets. Most homeowners do not consider crickets a nuisance until they are kept awake by chirping males seeking a mate, or they are overrun by a cricket invasion. Crickets do not bite nor carry diseases so they often rank a bit lower on the “I need pest control now” list.

Arizona crickets can multiply rapidly and more importantly they are a favorite food source for predator type insects that “sting” and “bite.” Stinging and biting insects will be attracted to healthy cricket populations and can be a threat to homeowners.  Cricket pest control should not be taken lightly.


Trusted Cricket Exterminator

Controlling cricket populations is similar to most Arizona insects…control nesting areas, reduce moisture sources, eliminate food sources, and seal access points to your home. Following these steps along with periodic applications and reducing outside lighting will control Cricket populations.

Crickets mate and lay eggs in the Arizona soil during the monsoon season. The eggs over-winter in the soil and hatch shortly after a period of rising temperatures and spring rains. The tiny immature crickets, called nymphs, look exactly like Cricket mini-me (except they have no wings) and feed on the same types of food. Within approximately 90 days, the nymphs mature into adults.

Indian House Crickets and Field Crickets are the two most common crickets found in metro Phoenix and generate the bulk of calls for cricket pest control.


Indian House Crickets

Light yellowish-brown or tan with darker bands and spots, about 3/4-inch long when mature; these are the most common and troublesome crickets. They

often gather around foundations and doors outside and readily come inside through cracks or openings. They are the only type of cricket that may live and produce young indoors. They typically hide during the day and come out at night to feed on crumbs, pet food, and plant debris.

Indian House Crickets are primarily nuisance pests. The males attract females by “chirping” at night, which can be extremely annoying for homeowners. The “chirping” sound is produced by the males rubbing their wings together. These crickets may also produce piles of unsightly droppings. When there are extremely high numbers of Indian house crickets, they may feed on fabrics and drywall. Outdoors, may damage young garden plants and annual flowers.


Field Crickets

Larger than Indian house crickets (slightly more than 1 inch when mature) and usually dark brown to shiny black in color, field crickets also enter houses and buildings. These crickets prefer to live and breed outdoors, where they feed on several kinds of plants. Occasionally they invade homes in search of hiding places but do not produce young indoors.

Field crickets are known to chew on and damage woolens, cotton, silks, synthetic fabrics, furs, and carpeting. Clothes with perspiration stains, and food spills are particularly attractive. Outdoors, may damage young garden plants and annual flowers.

“It’s important to control cricket populations as they will attract other insects such as scorpions, black widows that feed upon crickets.”

Prevention is the easiest way to manage cricket problems and will greatly reduce exposure to harsh chemicals often used in effective cricket pest control. Insect-proof your house by preventing entry, eliminating food and water sources, and limiting the use of night lighting which attracts insects. Use caulking and weather-stripping to fill all or openings, cracks, gaps, and holes in the foundation, siding, windows, doors, screens, and other possible entry points. Remove vegetation and debris that could serve as a hiding place or breeding site near the house. Keep all doors closed at night. Make sure all doors (including screen and garage doors) are tight-fitting.

  • Control exterior lighting – Keep lights off at night as much as possible.
  • Eliminate food sources – Put pet food away & keep the kitchen clean.
  • Check potted plants for Indian House Crickets.
  • Monthly cricket pest control services can eliminate heavy cricket infestations.
