Restless Evenings

Crickets are nocturnal and chirp to each other throughout the night without any regard for your sleep schedule.

Crickets Eat Through Fabric

Crickets enjoy fabric that's been soiled by food or perspiration, so laundry is fair game. They're also fans of cotton, silk, wool, linen, and furs.

Cricket Bites

Jerusalem Crickets, also commonly called potato bugs, may bite if they feel threatened. Bites may result in moderate yet short-lived pain.

The Orkin Approach

The Orkin Approach


We’ll inspect your home from top to bottom, inside and out, for current or potential pest problems.


We’ll treat the perimeter of your structure with the appropriate materials, remove all accessible spiderwebs and wasp nests, and use the safest methods available.


We’ll do everything we can to keep insects out—seal, caulk, plug, and secure gaps and cracks.

Keep Watch

We’ll treat the interior of your home and install pest monitors in critical areas such as kitchens, baths, utility rooms, and garages.


We’ll always provide a detailed report of services rendered and recommendations to help keep your home free of pests.

Follow Up

We’ll stay in touch between our regularly scheduled visits and respond to any immediate needs.

Custom Treatment

Say Sayonara to Crickets

Keeping crickets out of your home or building is an ongoing process, not a one-time treatment.

Thorough Investigation

Most crickets prefer damp, moist conditions. Our Pros will hunt for them in places like bathrooms, basements, and crawl spaces.

Natural Cricket Insecticides

By keeping the cricket lifecycle in mind (egg to nymph to adult), our Pros can help ensure reinfestation won't occur by using insecticides.

Chemical Combinations

If chemical products are the most effective and efficient approach, your plan might include exterior and interior applications of products.
