Cricket Control in Jacksonville, IL

Keeping Crickets Out of Your Home in Adams County & Surrounding Areas

There are many different species of crickets, but the most common types found in Illinois are house crickets and field crickets. House crickets are light yellowish-brown with three dark bands on their heads and long, thin antennae. Field crickets are dark brown or black and have large, powerful back legs that they use to jump.

Both house crickets and field crickets are considered to be nuisance pests. They are not dangerous to people or pets, but they can cause a lot of problems when they get inside homes and businesses. Crickets are most active at night and are attracted to bright lights. They are also attracted to moisture and are often found in basements, crawlspaces, and other damp areas.

How to Prevent a Cricket Infestation

There are several things you can do to help prevent a cricket infestation in your home or business. The most important thing is to make sure that your property is free of clutter and debris.

It is also important to make sure that your home or business is properly sealed. Crickets can enter through small cracks and crevices and will often hide in basements, crawlspaces, and other dark, damp areas. Make sure that all windows and doors are properly sealed and that any cracks or crevices are repaired.
