Cave crickets, also known as Camel Back Crickets, love damp and dark places like that in a basement or crawlspace. It is a sure indicator that the lower level of your home has too much moisture and humidity.
This creature gains access to your home late in the fall in search of a place to spend the winter. In the early spring they will have their babies making populations explode.
They can grow to a plump 3-4 inch insect and are enough to startle anyone who comes face-to-face with one in the basement. The good news is that they are harmless, do no damage, do not bite or sting.
We can control cave crickets and many pests through moisture reduction, and most likely no spraying of pesticides. Our professional level dehumidifiers will eliminate not only cave crickets but help to control a long list of problem pests that the high moisture content in your home is attracting.
