Crickets Invading Long Island Homes in Droves

When autumn and cooler weather arrives, crickets invade our homes. Crickets will become a major concern for the Long Island home owners.  When temperatures drop, these insects have begun looking for places to nest;  namely your basement. Besides the pesty noise, crickets can eat holes in clothes, drapery, furniture and other fabrics.

If you are experiencing a cricket infestation, please give Suburban Exterminating a call at (631) 864-6900 or (516) 864-6900.   We will correctly identify the invading pest and  create a pest control solution to cover all phases of extermination.
