Cricket Pest Control Services

Arizona is home to a wide variety of crickets, with more than 28 species found throughout the state. From the common house cricket to larger species like the camel cricket and field cricket, these insects can be seen in yards, gardens, and around homes. While some types of crickets are beneficial as they feed on other pests that may damage plants or crops, others can become a nuisance when their populations get too large. So what kind of crickets are found in Arizona and why might you have an infestation?

Camel crickets, sometimes called cave crickets or spider crickets, are one of the most common types of cricket found in Arizona. These insects are typically dark brown with a humpbacked appearance and long antennae. While they are generally harmless, they can damage fabrics and startle homeowners due to their size and jumping ability. Camel crickets are nocturnal feeders that prefer dark, damp places such as basements, crawlspaces, and garages. Field crickets are common in Arizona yards during the summer months. They are large, black insects that can reach up to an inch in length. While they are generally harmless, they can become a nuisance when their populations get too large and start chirping loudly at night. Mole crickets are common in Arizona yards during the summer months as well. These brownish-red insects have a white stripe running down their backs and are about an inch long. They feed on earthworms and can be identified by the burrowing tunnels they create in lawns and gardens.

The most common type of cricket found in Arizona is the house cricket. These small, light brown insects measure between 1⁄4 to 3⁄8 inches in length. House crickets are generally harmless and feed on a variety of food sources, including clothing and plants.

While most crickets found in Arizona are harmless, some can cause problems for homeowners. Camel crickets can startle people due to their size and jumping ability. They can also damage fabrics, such as clothing and curtains.

To prevent or reduce the number of crickets in and around your home, keep the area around your house clear of clutter. Remove piles of wood or other debris where crickets may take shelter. Seal any cracks or crevices in your home’s foundation or walls to prevent them from entering. Additionally, pest control companies like ourselves can use insecticides to control cricket populations.

If you are having problems with an infestation of crickets in your home, contact a pest control professional to help you get rid of them quickly and safely. They can help you identify the species of cricket present in your home and determine the best course of action. A pest control professional can also advise you on how to prevent future infestations.
