Cricket Pest Control Services
Crickets are primarily found all over Texas. These pests usually seek shelter, food, and water in homes during the winter months. Considered to be nocturnal, these insects infest dark and damp spaces in properties for survival. Although there is no evidence of harm to human health, the increase in their number can be a nuisance. What’s more, homeowners usually are not aware of the kind of damage crickets can do as they are fond of chewing on fabrics, leftover food, vegetation, and paper.
Crickets do not target humans as it is difficult for their mandibles to break the skin. However, the primary danger associated with crickets is not their bite but the parasites and diseases they carry, like Escherichia coli and salmonella. Furthermore, cricket feces contain worms that may cause painful sores and rashes on human skin if contacted. These insects can also make you sick with symptoms similar to the flu. Moreover, their constant chirping can be annoying and irritating. There are a number of crickets that are common in San Antonio and the surrounding areas including the following:
- Field Crickets
Some crickets happen to be field crickets, which are dark brown to black in color.
- House Crickets
A house cricket is similar to a field cricket, but they are smaller (about 3/4 inch long) and yellow-brown with dark bands on their head and upper body. They can breed indoors.
- Tree Crickets
They’re whitish to light green, with slender bodies and long antennae.
