Cave Cricket Control in Garden City, NY

Same-Day Cricket Control For Fast Relief Across Long Island & The 5 Boroughs

Has your home become infested by the notorious cave cricket, also known as the camel cricket or spider cricket? These pests are an invasive species with a knack for making their way into your home in the Greater New York Metropolitan area. If you're dealing with cave crickets, Pied Piper Pest Control is your best line of defense in exterminating them!

The pest control team at Pied Piper are experts at exterminating cave crickets on Long Island, with decades of experience eliminating cricket infestations for New York and Long Island residents. The cave cricket is the most common cricket found in homes on Long Island and is different from the field crickets you may see in your yard. They are attracted to cool, damp areas, making your basement an ideal environment. They are also commonly found near shaded areas, in laundry rooms or bathrooms, drains and sewers, leaves, and debris.

Cave Cricket FAQ's

  • What do cave crickets look like?

    Cave crickets, or camel crickets, and spider crickets have a few signature identifiers that make them hard to mistake, including:

    • A brown body, often covered in various shades of brown spots
    • A large, hump-shaped back with 6 legs
    • Large, drumstick-like back legs
    • A long set of antennae

    Although cave crickets are wingless, their long back legs allow them to make powerful jumpers, making them both difficult and nerve-wracking to catch. Cave crickets also have a long set of antennae and do not chirp like other crickets.

  • What attracts cave crickets?
    The cave cricket is active all year-round, and while usually residing in cool, damp areas, they begin searching for warmer places to spend the fall and winter in New York. You can find them hanging out around your foundation, and ultimately inside your home. Cave crickets lay eggs in the spring that will hatch within a few weeks. Because of their behavior, you will usually see a spike in cave cricket activity in the spring as they're hatching and in the fall as they're moving into warmer areas.
  • Can cave crickets cause damage?
    While camel crickets do not usually bite people, they do have chewing mouthparts that can cause damage to materials such as fabrics or clothes. Cave crickets are not poisonous and are more often seen as a scary nuisance more than anything.
  • How can I get rid of cave crickets?

    Pied Piper Pest Control offers an integrated pest management (IPM) approach to cave cricket control, which includes an assessment of your property and exclusion suggestions, as well as environmentally friendly treatment options. Homeowners can take steps to prevent cave crickets from invading their homes, such as:

    • Eliminating moisture in basement areas by using a dehumidifier
    • Sealing cracks and crevices around the foundation
    • Inspecting and sealing windows and checking screens for holes
    • Clearing debris away from the structure of your home to eliminate possible breeding sites
