Although crickets are essentially harmless, they can quickly become a nuisance if they begin to multiply in your home. The chirping noises alone can be problematic.
Another lesser known fact about crickets is that they can actually do damage to fabrics and clothing – which could cost you if the infestation were large or they inhabited your residence for too long.
Crickets can be found under logs, rocks, in wooded areas, and are usually most active at night. They find their way into homes through cracks, crevices, loose screens on windows, and when doors or windows are left open.
