Cricket Pest Control in Phoenix, Arizona
Cricket Activity in Arizona
Crickets are quite common in Arizona, both outside and inside our homes and businesses. The three most common types of crickets found in Arizona are:
- House cricket
- Tropical house cricket
- Field cricket
Are Crickets Harmful?
Crickets can’t physically harm humans. They don’t bite, sting, or carry diseases. Still, if allowed to get out of control, they can become a nuisance and do damage to a variety of materials.
Most of the crickets found in Arizona aren’t a huge threat to plants; however, they can do some minor damage to vegetables and flowering plants, as well as the roots of grasses. Inside your home, though, they may chomp on your clothes and furniture upholstery, as well as other items made from fabric. And in addition, to making a big racket with that infernal chirping, they might also eat foods in your pantry, while one of their favorite foods is the glue on wallpaper.
What’s Attracting Crickets Around Your Home?
- Cracks and gaps in the home or building’s foundation
- Gaps in between windows, doors, and screens
- Flower boxes
- Piles of rock or firewood
- Food and water sources
- Tall grasses
Ways to Prevent a Cricket Infestation
- Keep your grass cut low.
- Keep an eye out for leaks and get rid of standing water. Moisture attracts crickets.
- Seal any cracks around your house to keep crickets from finding their way inside. You can refer to our scorpion home seal guide for ways to seal off your home from all manner of pests, including crickets.
- Keep the lights off as long as possible, because light attracts crickets.
