Pest Protection for Your Home

Too many people, bright stars in the sky and the songs of crickets in the background make up the perfect summer night. However, if crickets find their way into your home, their chirping can be very annoying.

These nocturnal pests will hide throughout the day but chirp to each other throughout the night, and when they start, it’s impossible to get a good night’s sleep.

If crickets invade your house or property, they can also be very difficult to locate. They go silent when threatened, and the direction of the chirping is often difficult to determine. You’ll therefore need to enlist the services of pest control experts like Urban Desert Pest Control.

Crickets prefer to reside outdoors, but if your home provides them with the right conditions, they will gladly accept the invitation. For example, heavy outdoor lighting is one of the main reasons crickets are entering your home. These pests are attracted to heavy lights, and if your outdoor lights are too bright, you risk inviting crickets into your house.

Crickets are tiny insects and can enter your house or building through the tiniest opening.  Once inside, crickets seek out dark but warm places in your house. Therefore, you will find them in closets, crawl spaces,, and near heat sources, such as fireplaces and and furnaces.

Seal Foundational Gaps – Caulk any discovered foundation cracks and gaps near doors and windows. This denies crickets entry points to your house.

Keep Your Landscape Well-groomed – Tall grass and weeds create a haven for crickets. Make sure to cut any grass that is growing around your house and your lawn.

Use Sodium-Vapor Lighting – Crickets are lured to lights after the sun has gone down. Use yellow sodium-vapor outdoor lighting rather than white or mercury-vapor lighting. Also, if possible, put lights on poles with the light directed away from your door.

Clean Your Bins – Ensure that your garbage cans are cleaned regularly and properly sealed to deny crickets a breeding ground.
