Rid of Camel Crickets in Illinois and Wisconsin

What Are Camel Crickets?

Camel crickets look like huge spiders. They have six long legs, a curved back, and hind legs that resemble drumsticks. They are brown and tan and around 1 and 1 ¼ inches long. They don’t have wings but hop like other species of crickets. Camel crickets have poor eyesight and are most active at night. They don’t make a noise like other cricket species but lay eggs inside and outside their homes. They aren’t dangerous, but they can be a nuisance. They eat fabric and pretty much everything else they can get to.

Signs You Have a Camel Cricket Infestation

The most obvious sign of a camel cricket infestation is that you will see them hopping around your property, especially at night. They hang out in cool, damp places like under porches, in basements and crawl spaces, and around plumbing fixtures. If you don’t see camel crickets, you might see dark smears on surfaces from their fecal matter. You might also find damaged curtains, rugs, upholstery, pillows, towels, linens, garments, and other fabrics and textiles inside or outside your home.


Preventing a Camel Cricket Infestation

The best way to prevent camel crickets from infesting your home is to seal up any holes, gaps, and cracks around your windows, doors, and floors. Because camel crickets love cool, dark, and damp places, they can quickly move from underneath your home or porch to your basement if there are easy access points. You can also keep camel crickets away from your home by keeping your yard and areas around your home tidy. Don’t let vegetation, trash, boxes, organic matter, or debris build up in your yard or around your home. Keep piles of wood and trash cans away from the walls of your home, and don’t stack things up inside or outside your home. You can also use a dehumidifier or fan to reduce the moisture level in your home and close all openings that could act as an entry point for crickets to enter.

How to Get Rid of Camel Crickets

When we investigate camel cricket infestations, we first identify where the crickets are, how they got into the home, and whether they have started laying eggs. We inspect your home’s exterior and treat those areas for camel cricket extermination. We also seal, caulk, plug, and cover up any holes, cracks, or gaps the crickets could use to get inside. Then, we treat your home or business’s interior where we notice signs of camel crickets. We might combine dust, sprays, and traps or bait for the best results. Then we will give you tips for preventing further camel cricket infestations and schedule a follow-up visit to ensure our camel crickets control methods are working.
