CAVE/CAMEL CRICKET/HOUSE CRICKET

Cricket Control New YorkCave/Camel Cricket

The Cave/Camel Cricket 's hump-backed appearance when viewed from the side is where the name originates. They have jumping hind legs and long antennae like other crickets but they are wingless and so are unable to chirp. Color varies by species, ranging from light tan to brown, often having dark brown bands on some segments. Adults range from 0.5 to 1.5 inches in length. Camel crickets are usually associated with cool, damp, dark habitats. Since they are often found in caves, they are also commonly called cave crickets. Outdoors, they may be found under stones and logs and in other cool, damp habitats with suitable amounts of organic matter, which they use for food.

Like other crickets, camel crickets will invade buildings in the fall seeking suitable places to pass the winter. In these cases, they often remain in basements or crawl spaces and seldom damage items in the home. They are usually considered a nuisance only by virtue of their presence.

House Cricket

Adult house crickets are 3/4-1 inch long, light yellowish-brown with 3 dark bands on the head. They will eat almost anything, often causing damage to woolens and silk. Crickets are nocturnal, hiding during the daytime but becoming active and vocal during the night. The "song" or chirping sound of the house cricket is welcome anywhere except in homes where the constant night time (and daytime) chirping keeps humans from getting sleep.

Crickets can be found in basements, crawlspaces, kitchens, fireplaces, behind appliances, behind baseboards and other cracks, crevices and wall voids. It is in these voids that a professional pest control Specialist Will Spray.
