Types of Crickets in the McKinney Area

McKinney and the surrounding Texas areas are a playground for various cricket species, each with their own unique characteristics and behaviors. It's helpful to know a bit about these species to better understand their habits when formulating control strategies. 

McKinney is home to cricket species like: 

  • Field crickets: These black or dark brown insects are commonly found in open fields and can infest homes during dry seasons in search of moisture.
  • House crickets: As the name suggests, house crickets often invade houses and can feed on fabrics, causing damage to your belongings.
  • Jerusalem crickets: These large, flightless insects are nocturnal and predominantly live underground but can venture into homes occasionally.
  • Mole crickets: Notorious for damaging lawns and gardens, mole crickets burrow through the soil, disrupting the roots of grass and plants.
  • Camel crickets: These unusual cricket species, characterized by their humpbacked appearance, prefer damp environments and can often be found in basements, crawlspaces, and other humid areas of your property.

Remember, understanding these species creates a strong foundation for effective cricket control. The Big D Pest & Termite team uses our knowledge of these different cricket types to provide thorough, targeted cricket removal and control services.

Should You Also Be Worried About Grasshoppers?

While grasshoppers and crickets might seem similar and belong to the same insect family, their impact on your home or property can be somewhat different. Grasshoppers are typically outdoor insects and are known for their voracious appetites. They primarily consume plant material and can defoliate gardens and damage agricultural fields, particularly during periods of high population density known as plagues. If you own a garden or farm, a grasshopper infestation can indeed be a cause for concern.

However, unlike crickets, grasshoppers are less likely to invade your home. They prefer open, sunny spaces with an abundance of vegetation. That being said, it's still possible for them to make their way inside, particularly during hotter, drier conditions when they're seeking moisture. If you spot grasshoppers regularly around your property or notice significant plant damage, it could be worth contacting a pest control professional. At Big D Pest & Termite, we're ready to assess your situation and recommend an effective treatment plan to handle both crickets and grasshoppers.
