Crickets are commonly found throughout homes and gardens in Southern California. As a result, cricket pest control is often front of mind for Southern California homeowners.
Here at 1st Stryke, we want to help get rid of any pests you may have while also educating you along the process. Here is a closer look at cricket pest control, starting with taking a closer look at these noisy pests.
While some people may have a higher tolerance for crickets as opposed to other creepy crawlies, like cockroaches, the chirping is often what drives most homeowners crazy. What many don’t know is that it is only the male crickets that are responsible for making all of the noise. The signature chirping of these insects is used to attract females for mating and is produced by rubbing wings against one another.
Cricket chirping may be pleasant and peaceful when you are sitting outside in the spring or summer; however, once indoors, cricket chirping can be annoying. The chirping noise may pester visitors, ruining their overall experience and leading to bad reviews or ruined reputations.
Getting Rid of Crickets
Aside from calling in the experts, there are a few tips you can manage on your own to attempt to get rid of crickets in your home.
- Minimize mulch: keep mulch at a depth of 2 inches or less
- Minimize light sources: turn lights from white to yellow
