I need some help... How the **** do you get rid of crickets(besides manually)? It's 4:42 am and I'm so god damn tired and just want to sleep. I was awoken at 2:30am by these two ****ers. I got one of the *******s good (thank you Da Vinci Code hardcover). One is hiding where I can't get him. I need just one clean shot...

I searched google and I got no help (there was even a ****ing Poem about them *******s)...

Advice?

This may be tough. Once when I was in college a neighbor in the dorm played a practical joke on everyone by releasing literally hundreds of them in the dorm. As it's a private dorm they had more budget and even the professional had a tough time. It was a nightmare.

Beyond that, have you tried roach baits? If you do, just make sure that crickets are one of the bugs that it kills because one bug's poison may be another bug's candy.

Use your super powers to explode their hearts with your laser eye beams.

That, or you could just squash them as Clark Kent.

I know, huh? I mean, Superman is having a hard time with crickets? Don't let Lex in on this.

Get rid of any outdoor lighting, and go to Lowes or Home Depot and get some granular type products... that would help the most.

I had a cricket in my house two nights ago.....he was so loud...I flipped on the lights and he was on the stairs....I had to hit him about ten times with a slipper to kill him. I felt bad after this, but they need to stay outside. :wink:

OK guys good news! This ****ing bug has been keeping me up again through most of the night. Except his ******* just peaked out to say hello and met my hand... So he's deadish. Not really dead, but his body is broken and he's on the run.


What did the 5 fingers say to the face? SLAP!

Crickets are not that bad....my mom's friend had over 20 squirrels that made their way through the roof and into the wall spaces of her house....she had all kinds of damage and had to get an exterminator to get them out and then had to get a roofer to fix the damage.
