Cricket Control in Silver Spring MD

Most active during the spring and summer months in the Silver Spring area, crickets are nocturnal insects that do most of their eating, mating and chirping at nighttime. When cooler temperatures arrive in the fall, more and more crickets will seek shelter from the cold inside homes, sheds, and other structures, so you’ll want to be proactive in removing them from your home and preventing them from coming back.

General Facts about Crickets

  • They have black or brown bodies measuring ½ to 1 ¼ inches long
  • They have six legs and long, thin antennae
  • Male crickets chirp to attract female crickets
  • Baby crickets hatch around 15 to 25 days after mating
  • Their diets consist of seeds, grass, and other insects both alive and dead

Do I Have Crickets?

While it’s only the male crickets that do all the chirping, this sound is still the most common way to identify a cricket infestation. If you’re noticing very small bite marks (no larger than 1 mm in size) around carpeted areas in your home, this may be another sign of a cricket infestation. Crickets are also known to chew on flowers, leaves, linens, and clothing, and may leave small droppings in and around your home.

Are Crickets Dangerous?

While it is possible for crickets to carry diseases, it is quite rare for them to bite humans and they are not known to carry any diseases that are fatal to humans.

Is There More Than One Type of Cricket?

The three types of crickets most commonly found in the Maryland area are field crickets, house crickets, and camel crickets.

What’s the Difference Between the Three?

Field crickets, as can be deduced from their name, tend to stay outdoors in fields and grassy areas. If field crickets do make their way inside, they are known to chew their way through fabrics.

House crickets can also be found outside in grassy areas but are usually found inside homes and commercial buildings where they seek shelter and food. House crickets also tend to be a bit smaller in size and have more of a lighter brown coloring to their bodies.

Camel crickets have an unusual humpbacked appearance with heads that are bent downward between their front legs. Their antennae are much longer than their bodies and their large hind legs make them very strong jumpers. Adults do not have wings and range in size from ½ to 1 ½ inches in length.

How Do I Get Rid of Crickets?

The quickest way to effectively rid your home of crickets is to call a professional. At Miche Pest Control, our highly trained technicians can quickly and safely rid your home of crickets with a treatment plan designed specifically to meet your needs.

What Else Can I Do to Prevent Crickets from Coming Back?

Once we’ve gotten the crickets under control during your initial treatment, we recommend continuous quarterly treatment of the exterior of your home to prevent any crickets from returning. You can also prevent cricket infestations by:

  • Regularly cleaning your home and yard
  • Removing any potential cricket hiding spots, like piles of wood and mulch
  • Removing dead plants from around your yard
  • Sealing potential entry points around windows and doors, especially ones with screens
  • Using a dehumidifier to remove moisture from your home in places like the basement
  • Use yellow lights in your home instead of white lights, where possible

Silver Spring MD

Silver Spring is a census-designated place (CDP) in southeastern Montgomery County, Maryland, near Washington DC. Although officially unincorporated, in practice it is an edge city. Silver Spring is the fourth most populous place in Maryland, after Baltimore, Columbia, and Germantown, and the second most populous in Montgomery County after Germantown.

The downtown, located next to the northern tip of Washington DC, is the oldest and most urbanized part of the community. Since beginning a significant renaissance in 2004, many new mixed-use developments combining retail, residential, and office space have been built. Downtown is in turn surrounded by several inner suburban residential neighborhoods located inside the Capital Beltway.

Silver Spring takes its name from a mica-flecked spring discovered there in 1840 by Francis Preston Blair, who subsequently bought much of the surrounding land. Acorn Park, south of downtown, is believed to be the site of the original spring.

From west to east, Silver Spring is bisected by four major creeks: Rock Creek, Sligo Creek, Long Branch, and Northwest Branch. Each is surrounded by parks offering hiking trails, playgrounds, picnic areas, and tennis courts. On weekends, road closures in the parks facilitate bicycling.
