Crickets (Rhaphidophoridae)

How bad can Crickets be?

Most people are unaware that there are two types of crickets in our area. The neat looking cricket you see on the Disney channel and then there is this gross looking, prehistoric-looking freak they call a "Camel Cricket" or "Cave Cricket".

Jimmy the Cricket, the one that looks like the Disney character is a "Field Cricket" and is most often seasonal and in most cases easy to control.

The ugly freak Camel Cricket is a problem and more difficult to control.

Outside - Camel Crickets are usually found in woodpiles, mulch, or even in wells. If they make their way into a home, they will find places similar spots such as utility rooms, damp basements, your garage, or even crawl spaces.

Though they don’t pose any health threats to people, once they make their way into your home, they have a habit of eating fabrics including curtains and clothing. They've also been reported munching on clothing hung outside to dry.

However, dead Camel Crickets have been known to pollute wells and create an unpleasant odor if not disposed of quickly. This could possibly attract other pests and cause a larger infestation.

There are other features and problems this guy brings into the house - and it is not seasonal. CALL US to speak to our 'In-house' inspector to determine what you are dealing with.

PestNow's 4 Season Prescription

Houses are like people, they get sick too.

It takes specially trained people to recognize the symptoms and prescribe the proper cure. Treating your home should be as important as treating the people that live in that home.

Why multiple treatments?

Pest control is based on science, not magic. Most re-infesting pests such as roaches, ants, mice etc. go through different stages of life once they infest a structure. One treatment will not disrupt the life cycle of the pest.

PestNow has got your pest control covered!

Call PestNow TODAY!


The PestNow '4 Seasons Prescription' is the most effective treatment on the market today.

The PestNow '4 Seasons Prescription' is designed to address the target pest on the first visit by treating the interior/exterior of the structure. The follow-up treatments (spaced out at 90-day intervals) are exterior only unless the interior needs further attention.

This method keeps the product outside while still addressing the interior. Keeping the product outside is our primary goal and is all part of the prescription. Interior treatments, when needed, are never an extra charge.

Every 90 days the exterior of the structure is treated to reduce the population and provide a safe and effective barrier. You do not even have to be home for this service, which frees up your schedule while we take care of your home.
