Pesticides have a very limited effect on these fall invaders because they just keep on coming. Before crickets invade your home try some of the following tips:

  • Turn off lights at night, direct lighting away from the structure or use yellow bulbs which are less attractive to insects
  • Seal cracks and crevices that give entrance to the structure with sealant
  • Remove debris that is stacked near the structure
  • Keep lawn and surrounding landscape tended
  • Stuff weep holes with copper mesh (this will allow air flow into the wall voids, but will reduce accessibility)
