Crickets are 1/2 to 1 1/8 of an inch in length. They are light brown to black in color and sometimes green. They have long threadlike antennae that are longer than their body. Crickets make a chirping noise.
Female crickets have a long stinger-like appendage coming out of the rear of their body.
A cricket’s diet consists of agricultural grain crops and vegetables. They also eat fabrics, synthetics or leather and fur, especially when it’s soiled with human perspiration.
Crickets cause damage to fabrics and are a minor nuisance pest around and inside structures.
