Crickets are a common complaint among homeowners. While they may not create as much damage as other pests, their presence is still frightening and disturbing to many My Pest Pros offers exterminators in Fairfax, Washington D.C. and the surrounding metros that are experts at the cricket control and removal services you need.
Crickets are found worldwide. Some of the most common crickets in the Washington, D.C. area are the camel and house crickets. They are commonly encountered in crawl spaces, basements, storage sheds, garages, outbuildings, and other damp, out of the way areas. They can also be found under decks during humid weather.
A camel cricket can grow to be more than one and a quarter inches long. They are typically light tan to dark brown with the typical humpbacked appearance. They can cause alarm because they’re fearless and, if encountered, will hop toward you. They are more active at night but will jump frequently during the day if disturbed. Even when you can’t see them jumping around, you may hear their chirping.
House crickets like the warmth and can often be found near fireplaces, kitchens as well as basements. As omnivores, they will feed on any food source they find.
