Crickets

Crickets are insects related to grasshoppers. They have somewhat flattened bodies and long antennae.  There are about 900 species of crickets. They tend to be nocturnal and are often confused with grasshoppers because they have a similar body structure including jumping hind legs.

Crickets are omnivorous scavengers who feed on organic materials as well as decaying plant material, fungi and some seedling plants. Crickets eat their own dead when there are no other sources of food available and exhibit predetorial behavior upon weakened, crippled crickets.

The sound emitted by crickets is commonly referred to as chirping (scientific name is stridulation), which is very annoying over long periods of time. Crickets have relatively powerful jaws, and several species have been known to bite humans.

Elimination of these annoying creatures can be achieved by calling Rebel Pest Professionals to book in a service.
