The sounds of crickets chirping in the night can be a beautiful thing; unless it's coming from inside your home.

Heritage Pest Control is a leader in New Jersey cricket control solutions. With over 30 years of experience, we know all the tips and tricks to get rid of crickets quickly and efficiently. Read below to learn more about how our technicians handle these pests and remember to reach out to Heritage Pest Control for all your New Jersey pest control needs.

What Are Crickets?

Crickets in New Jersey are easily identified by their long, powerful hindlegs and impressive leaps. They're also noted for their distinctive chirping, though not all species make such sounds. The average adult cricket size is 1 ½ inches long.

Crickets prefer living outside and avoid humans as much as possible. However, it's not uncommon for these bugs to find themselves indoors when the temperature drops, causing a cricket infestation. If you suspect crickets are stowed away in your home, call Heritage Pest Solutions for a prompt and thorough inspection.

Crickets In Your Home Can Be More Than Just Annoying

Crickets aren't aggressive towards humans, but that doesn't mean they can't cause serious problems. Cricket droppings can carry diseases and parasites. Physical contact with their waste could mean contracting salmonella, for example.

Crickets also pose a threat to fabric items. These omnivores will gleefully feed on curtains, clothes, and upholstery when given a chance. Their incredible appetites can lead to extensive damage to these items throughout your home.

Ensuring your safety is Heritage Pest Control's top priority. To that end, we offer triannual service visits to protect your New Jersey home from crickets in spring, summer, and fall. Our technicians are also dedicated to using EPA-approved green products for the health of you and your property.

Simple Tips To Prevent Crickets In Your Home

Like many small insects, crickets can sneak into our homes and remain undetected until they make their presence known. However, keeping crickets out doesn't have to be an expensive or elaborate affair. Here are some simple, straight-forward ways you can keep these pests outdoors where they belong:

  • Install door sweeps on your entryway doors
  • Patch holes around your window frames and in your window screens
  • Seal cracks in your home's foundation
  • Keep the grass and plants close to your home trimmed short to encourage crickets to nest elsewhere
  • Reduce the moisture in your home
  • Make sure your trash cans are sealed

You can also count on Heritage Pest Control technicians to help secure your home. During home inspections, they'll identify problem areas that could serve as entry points for crickets and other pests. We will work together with you to keep your home secure from pests in the future.
