Crickets in House? Mesa’s Choice for Cricket Removal
One evening, you trudge down to the basement to take the laundry out of the wash or to grab a dishrag and something large and shifty moves in the corner of your eye. You turn to look, and to your horror, there are dozens of large spider-like creatures on your wall or floor. You scream, and one of the spider-like creature jumps directly at you.
What a nightmare. But it’s no dream: this scenario happens to Mesa homeowners every day. And they’re not spiders—they’re crickets—usually camel or cave crickets. These frightening-looking creatures might be harmless, but that doesn’t mean they’re not a nuisance. And if you don’t take the right measures, you could soon have a full-fledged infestation on your hands.
If you or your loved ones is facing the prospect of crickets living and mating in your home, you probably have a lot of questions. We at Pest Home Defense have taken the time to answer some of the most common questions we hear about camel crickets and what an infestation means for your Mesa home.
Are Crickets Harmful to Humans?
Unlike rats, mice, bed bugs, and scorpions, the sort of crickets we see most in Arizona pose no threat to humans. They can’t sting your children or pets, and they don’t even bite! If you have crickets in your house, all they are looking to do is to eat and breed new generations of crickets.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you should let them have their way with your living room. Your home is your castle, and just because crickets aren’t dangerous doesn’t mean they can’t damage your peace of mind or become a serious nuisance.
Why Are There So Many Crickets in My House?
While they look quite big when they’re on your basement wall, crickets are invertebrates like most insects and can fit through really tiny cracks and holes in your home’s exterior.
Crickets are attracted to moisture and will eat just about anything. Paper, tissues, fabrics, leaves, dirt and debris: all are appetizing menu options for the common cave or camel cricket. It’s easy to see how with such a large diet, crickets will make nests in almost any place—especially if that place provides safety from predators and the elements, like your home’s basement does.
