Signs of a cricket infestation is the chirping noise the male house crickets often make, which is done when they rub their front wings together. This “calling song” serves to attract females and, since they’re nocturnal, often occurs at night. If you hear this chirping, it could be a sign of a house cricket infestation. Chewed fabric is also a sign of a house cricket infestation.
House crickets don’t post a health risk to humans, but can cause damage to property, specifically clothing, carpets and areas covered in fabric. Favourite fabrics include wool, cotton, silk and synthetics. As house crickets typically surface feed, they leave the area roughened from pulling the fibres loose while eating. In the case of a heavy infestation, large areas of fabric may be eaten out. This is why it’s important to get rid of crickets as soon as possible.
