Crickets are seen in a variety of species in central Arkansas. House crickets measure between 3/4 and 7/8-inch long and are light, yellowish-brown in colorand exhibit three dark bands atop their heads.
Ground crickets are brown and much smaller than other common cricket species. Field crickets are brown or black in color and can grow to measure more than one inch in length.
Crickets are a common food source for other animals, including rodents, lizards and spiders so having them may mean you’re inviting other pests in or around your home. When mating, male crickets create sound by rubbing their forewings against each other. These sounds can prove troublesome at night, when they are often loud enough to interrupt sleep. If you’ve got crickets keeping you up, then call Currys and we’ll help bring back the silence.
