Crickets are small to medium-sized insects that belong to the Gryllidae family. They are known for their distinctive chirping sounds, produced by rubbing their wings together in a process called stridulation. While some people may enjoy the melodious chirping during warm summer evenings, an overabundance of crickets can become a nuisance.
The House Cricket prefers warm weather but can survive year round in the Palm Springs and surrounding cities. They live in and around structures and can quickly turn into an infestation in a short period of time if no treatment is done. The house cricket is the primary source of food for black widows, scorpions, and all other large more dangerous predators in the Palm Springs Area.
