You can take plenty of measures to get rid of crickets, but you need a specific knowledge of cricket traits for effective prevention. Our team at Adams Exterminating Company wants to lend a hand and help you protect your property. Read our advice below, and call on Adams Exterminating Company for the best in Frisco pest control.

Physical Characteristics Of Crickets: What to Look For

Most folks can identify cricket sounds, but identifying them by their physical traits isn't always so simple. It's common knowledge that they're accomplished jumpers, but what else sets them apart from other bugs? Here's what you need to know to make the call.

Crickets have very long, narrow bodies. A dead giveaway that you're dealing with crickets lies in their legs; they have three pairs of legs, each with three joints. Crickets also have wings, but they lack the ability to fly.

These tips will help you identify many cricket species, but if you'd like a second opinion, we're here to help.  Adams Exterminating Company technicians will identify your pest problems, the factors that have caused them, and additional factors that could lead to more during your initial inspection.

Cricket Problems: More Than Just A Nuisance Noise

First, no matter what types of crickets you've found in your home, you can rest easy knowing that they don't bite or sting. While other insects are notorious menaces, crickets aren't the aggressive type. However, they still have dangerous behaviors.

Crickets can cause extensive damage to anything made of natural fibers, meaning wood, clothes, other fabrics, paper, and even plants in your home. Upholstery is a typical victim of crickets.

Professional services from Adams Exterminating Company can put any cricket infestation behind you, and it all starts with one phone call. Our treatment plans cover the inside and outside of your home for a comprehensive solution that reduces the odds of future infestations. We have a variety of package plans to meet different needs.
