Cricket Control FAQ

How do I get rid of crickets?

The best way to make sure crickets are gone for good is to eliminate their food sources. Cleaning your home will help keep them at bay until Fox Pest Control can come to the door. Home remedies just aren’t thorough enough to eradicate all crickets permanently.

Can crickets damage my house?

The spider cricket, also known as the camel cricket or hump-backed cricket, can eat wood, cardboard, plants, or other insects, including other spider crickets. If these crickets have entered your home, they aren’t going to hurt you, but they can cause problems by eating parts of your home.

What problems do crickets cause?

Usually, the biggest problem crickets can cause is attracting other insects to your yard or inside your home. Because crickets are high in protein, raccoons, spiders, centipedes, birds, and other animals are likely to come on your property if you have lots of crickets.

Will crickets eat my garden?

While crickets do enjoy a good leaf now and then, they’re unlikely to cause as serious a problem for the garden as beetles, aphids, spider mites, and caterpillars. As omnivores, crickets will take advantage of all sorts of available food sources, but they’re unlikely to focus on your garden. 

Are crickets dangerous for my family or my pets?

Crickets rarely bite, can’t sting, don’t have venom, and, if a cat or dog swallows one, they most likely won’t cause any problems. 

What exactly are crickets?

Crickets are distantly related to grasshoppers. They have cylinder-shaped bodies and long hind legs. Many species have wings that they use to make a chirping sound. 

What are “True Crickets”?

“True crickets” make up the family Gryllidae, while camel crickets and mole crickets belong to two other families within the order Orthoptera. 

Why do crickets chirp? How do crickets chirp?

By rubbing their wings together, the males chirp in order to attract a female.  

Some males make chirping sounds after mating as a sort of celebration song. Not all species are able to make a chirping sound.

What is the difference between a grasshopper and a cricket?

There are several differences between grasshoppers and crickets:

Chirping Style. Crickets make their chirping sounds by rubbing their comb-like wings together. 
Grasshoppers rub their legs on their wings to make a similar, though harsher sound. 

Antennae. Crickets have long and willowy antennae.
Grasshoppers have shorter antennae. 

Activity. Crickets are active at night, being nocturnal. 
Grasshoppers are active during the day, being diurnal. 

Diet. Crickets are mainly omnivores (some are exclusively herbivores though), so they’ll eat almost anything, from a decaying animal carcass to a tasty leaf. 
Grasshoppers are mainly herbivores, but some species are omnivores.

What do crickets eat?

Since most are omnivores, crickets will eat plants, meat, or other insects. Crickets tend to eat whatever they can.

Are crickets cannibals?

In some cases, desperate crickets have been known to turn to cannibalism in order to survive by preying on weak, sick, or injured crickets.

Do some people eat crickets?

In fact, some parts of the world enjoy crickets as a delectable meal. Some parts of Asia deep fry these critters and eat them as treats or snacks. Cricket protein powder is also starting to catch on in the U.S.

Rockland County Pest Control Reviews

5 Stars

We have never needed pest control in the past and we randomly called Fox. We couldn't be happier with Phil the technician that came to service our home. Phil was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He answered all of our questions and put us at ease. If all of Fox's technicians are like Phil then you'll be in good hands.

We've been using FOX for the last few years for seasonal pest maintenance. Every time we see some sort of pest activity outside our regular seasonal treatment, they come quick and take care of it. The workers are always kind and courteous and answer my questions and concerns. We've recommended this company to a number of family and friends who have also used FOX for treatment.
