Basic Facts About Crickets
On Long Island, there are two types of crickets: the field cricket and the house cricket. Crickets are nocturnal or active at night. Light attracts them. Male crickets make that loud chirping sound by rubbing their legs together. Some cricket species have wings. All crickets eat both plants and other insects.
House crickets can damage silk, woolens, paper, fruits and vegetables. House crickets typically invade in large numbers and can create a lot of damage to a lot of different products. While field crickets don’t always live long, they are also hard to control.
