Although crickets are harmless, they can become a problem if they begin to multiply in your home. They are noisy insects and also leave unsightly droppings.
Another little-known fact about crickets is they can do damage to fabrics and clothing – which can be quite costly if they are present in large numbers and damage bedding and clothing.
Crickets are found in yards, under logs and rocks, and in wooded areas. They are usually most active at night. They find their way into your home through cracks, crevices, loose screens on windows, and when doors or windows are left open.
