Size: Varies, though usually no larger than 1 1/2 inches in length.
Color: Generally black or brown.
Behavior: Crickets generally live and breed outdoors and invade buildings searching for food, moisture or shelter. The adults are attracted to bright lights on buildings and may fly to homes and other buildings by the dozens or even hundreds (in mid- to late summer). Once near the building, crickets will crawl through any crack or hole that allows them access inside. These insects have been known to feed on and damage clothing, usually items that are soiled and await laundering. Camel crickets do live and breed indoors, usually in a crawl space, cellar or basement. They occasionally wander up into the living areas of the home where their quick jumping ability can startle the unwary person. Camel crickets may also invade homes from wood piles and similar areas outside.
The natural habitat of crickets is a field or wooded area. Near buildings, they will be found living among tall weeds and heavy vegetation (e.g., ivy), under boards, stones and other items, and in piles of lumber, firewood or debris.
The best way to limit crickets is to eliminate as much potential harborage as possible outside the building. The following tips should prove helpful:
Store firewood away from the home and off the ground.
Dispose of piles of lumber or store such items off the ground.
Clean up piles of leaf litter and clean up any debris that could provide shelter.
Remove any heavy ground cover in landscaping within 10 feet of the home.
Install yellow "bug" light bulbs in outdoor fixtures to attract as few crickets as possible.
Seal as many exterior cracks and holes as possible in the outside walls.
Improve crawl space ventilation to make the subspace less attractive to camel crickets.
