How Did I Get Cave Crickets?

Cave Crickets enter homes, condos, apartment buildings when the outside temperature begins to drop, particularly in the fall looking for shelter from the cold weather. Most often they will be in dark, moist basements or garages. Since they are scavengers and eat many different things, infestations are not due to the food sources as much as due to shelter. They also could attract mice and other rodents, since crickets are a major food source for mice. For these reasons, it is best to have them exterminated.

Why Is It So Difficult To Get Rid Of Cave Crickets?

Since they do not live in colonies or groups it can be difficult to find them all. Failure to eliminate all of them often results in repeat invasions. Pesticides are the best solution. Due to the danger of chemicals, it is best to hire a professional exterminator who can use environmentally friendly chemicals in a safe manner.
