Foundation Pest Control

Crickets are common in Memphis, known for their distinctive chirping sounds, especially during the warmer months. While they are mostly harmless, their presence can be annoying and cause minor damage to fabrics and plants. This guide provides comprehensive information on crickets and effective ways to manage them.

Identifying Crickets

Crickets are typically dark brown or black with long antennae and powerful hind legs adapted for jumping. They range from 3/4 to 1 inch in length. The most common types found in Memphis include the house cricket, field cricket, and camel cricket.

Behavior and Habitats

Crickets are nocturnal insects, meaning they are most active at night. They are attracted to light and can often be found near outdoor lighting or inside homes where light is prevalent. During the day, they hide in dark, moist places such as under rocks, mulch, or logs.

Seasonal Activity

In Memphis, crickets are most active during the late summer and early fall. They seek warm, humid environments and often enter homes in search of food and shelter as the weather cools down.

Risks and Concerns

While crickets are not dangerous, they can cause several issues:

  • Noise: The loud chirping of male crickets can be a nuisance, especially at night.
  • Fabric Damage: Crickets may feed on fabrics, causing small holes in clothing, upholstery, and carpets.
  • Plant Damage: They can also damage young plants and seedlings by feeding on them.

Prevention Tips

Preventing crickets from invading your home involves reducing attractants and eliminating entry points:

  • Seal Entry Points: Ensure all cracks and gaps around windows, doors, and foundations are sealed.
  • Reduce Outdoor Lighting: Use yellow outdoor lighting, which is less attractive to crickets.
  • Proper Landscaping: Keep the area around your home free of debris and maintain a well-manicured lawn to eliminate hiding spots.
  • Reduce Moisture: Fix leaky pipes, use dehumidifiers, and ensure proper ventilation in damp areas.

Dealing with an Infestation

If you have a cricket infestation, taking immediate action is important:

  • Reduce Moisture: Address any sources of excess moisture in and around your home.
  • Eliminate Hiding Spots: Clear away debris and clutter where crickets may hide.
  • Insecticides: Use insecticides labeled for crickets around the perimeter of your home and in problem areas.
  • Professional Pest Control: Contact Foundation Pest Control for expert assistance. Our professionals can identify the source of the infestation and provide effective treatment options.

  • I had an unexpected bed bug issue from travelling, and the Foundation Pest Control team gave me a competitive quote within 24 hours, and arrived to treat my house in two days. I had a new baby so the team even offered to assist me with putting mattress covers on the beds. I could not have asked for a better experience given the situation.

  • Jody and Foundation Pest Control saved a closing I was handling as a real estate closing attorney. We needed a Termite Clearance Letter the morning of the closing and he rescheduled what he was doing to get it done. He is the best!
