How to Get Rid of Crickets in Your Home in Jones County

Crickets are nocturnal insects that are known for their chirping sounds. Crickets are omnivores, meaning they eat both plants and animals. Crickets are attracted to areas where there is moisture and plenty of vegetation. They are often found in grassy areas of yards, under decks, and under leaves. Crickets are also attracted to light, so they are often found on the exterior of homes.

Crickets are a nuisance pest, but they are not known to spread disease or cause structural damage to homes. However, they can damage plants and crops and may invade pantries or kitchens looking for food.
