ok this year for bugs has been bad..ants by the millions in the backyard (though not in the house yet thankfully) but instead, this year we are being invaded by crickets! today alone i have killed, caught/released at least 5 already!! and i find them everyday! i think the dogs must have gotten to our resident toad outback. cause he used to eat crickets and i havent seen him so far this season. ive heard ppl using pepper for the ants..but what in the world do you use to keep crickets out?!

Did you know that Crickets eat spiders? They eat many other insects..Poor crickets are making music.;)

i had a bad time last night trying to find the cricket in my room. i was sewing one of my shorts then i heard the annoying noise they made. they are really loud even louder than my AC. Jeez! i was looking for it all over my room.. i couldnt find it. Grrrr.. i couldnt ignore the noise either. so i did is i carelessly sprayed every corners in my room. glad it did stop. whew! but i couldnt find it even now. they are really annoying especially on winter.

Really Crickets are your friends..they eat other insects..and if you are superstitious;) It's bad luck to kill a cricket.. I would never kill a cricket they are gently insecuts.
