Cave Cricket infestation


Recommended Posts

Had them at my last house.  We have 2 cats and a lab.  They enjoyed the hell out of chasing them and ripping them apart.  But, that only led to more.

They're cannibals and eat watch other.  Don't waste money on glue traps and make your own with 2 2x4s and duct tape. Stretch duct tape sticky side up between two 2x4s. Make the trap as big or small as you want.  Mine were 2ft by 2ft squares

Once the first is stuck the rest try to jump on it and eat it and get stuck too.  I killed hundreds in less than a week.

For prevention, dehumidifier and clean up any dead cave crickets so they don't have stuff to eat.

Now we're talking. Brilliant.
