Camel Crickets

What are Camel Crickets?

Camel Crickets are large crickets. They love moisture and darkness, so you’re likely to see them in places like your basement or a damp garage. 

What do Camel Crickets look like?

Camel Crickets are large crickets. They are often described as looking like a cross between a spider and a cricket. They’re typically light brown with darker brown markings. They have very long back legs that make them excellent jumpers.  

Are Camel Crickets dangerous?

Camel Crickets are not dangerous to humans or pets; they’re considered more of a nuisance. 

What are the signs of a Camel Cricket infestation?

The only sign of a Camel Cricket infestation is to see a large number of Camel Crickets in one place (usually your basement, or a damp garage). 

How do I get rid of Camel Crickets?

Camel crickets are attracted to damp and dark places. Reducing the humidity in your basement or garage is a good start. This can be easily accomplished by running a dehumidifier. If you think you have a camel cricket infestation, though, call an experienced pest control company like Debug. Your Debug technician will find the camel crickets and help you find a way to eliminate them from your home or business.
