Whether you have spider crickets or a bed bug infestation, it is important to get rid of these pests quickly. Not only can they be annoying, but they can also damage property, such as clothing stored in cardboard boxes.
They are also known as cave crickets. These insects are nocturnal and congregate in large numbers in caves and under rocks. Spider crickets are omnivorous, feeding on a variety of foods including mold, fungi, moss and leaves. Their mandibles are also used to chew through plants and wood.
Although they do not make noise or produce sound to attract mates, these crickets have an excellent jumping ability. When they jump they do so with the intention of scaring away potential predators.
Spider crickets are a very elusive insect. You can’t see them, but they can easily enter your home through cracks and openings on the lower level. As you can imagine, it can be a very tense situation when you have them in your home.
There are a number of methods to combat an infestation of spider crickets. One of the best ways to do this is to use sticky traps. Sticky traps are a great way to monitor the amount of spider crickets in your home. Use duct tape or other reusable materials to create a trap. The trick is to bait the trap.
Another option is to use a dehumidifier. This will help to dry out the area and prevent spider crickets from hiding out. If you can, keep your basement windows and doors weatherstripped.
