Field Crickets


  • Average size is between 0.5 and 1 inches
  • Most species are black but can be reddish or brown in color
  • Will eat a variety of foods including grass, seeds, grasshopper eggs, and will even steal from spiders

The field cricket is a small cricket that is a fairly common household pest. Small numbers are merely a nuisance, but in large numbers field crickets can cause damage to fabrics and spread disease.

Like other crickets, male field crickets chirp to attract a mate. This chirp is often the first sign of a cricket infestation. Field crickets prefer to live outside, but will venture inside through cracks and open doorways in their search for food. Field crickets will usually die before winter unlike the House cricket which is better suited to living indoors.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
