Everything You Need to Know About Camel Crickets

During the change in seasons, camel crickets can become a nuisance to homeowners, especially in areas experiencing dry weather.  Camel crickets are common all over the world.

Camel crickets are light to dark brown with a hump-back appearance.  They have six legs including hind legs that are often as long as the rest of their body.

Adults are very small, only growing up 1.25” in body length.  Unlike other cricket species, camel crickets do not have sound producing structures on their back legs, and adults do not have wings.  Their only form of defense is to leap when frightened.

Outside, camel crickets are usually found in mulch, woodpiles or in wells.  They can make their way into a home and are usually found in such spots as damp basements, utility rooms, garages or crawl spaces.

One reason camel crickets are considered household pests is their habit of eating fabrics including curtains and clothing.  Homeowners have even reported crickets munching on clothing hung outside to dry.

InCide® Pest Control Insulation will kill camel crickets upon contact with the insulation and is intended to prevent infestations anywhere the product is applied.  InCide® is treated with a highly effective pesticide and fire-retardant.  It is highly recommended for use in new construction and retrofit application in attics, sidewalls and crawl spaces.

InCide® is authorized by USDA for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants and is recommended for houses, apartments, offices, food processing plants, hospitals, restaurants, schools and hotels.  InCide® is certified and approved by the EPA and may only be installed by a licensed pest management company.
