Repel/Catch/Kill Crickets

  • Crickets are great outside, but when they start living in entry ways or other places they shouldn't be it's time to get rid of them.

    How to get rid of Crickets:

    1.) Use Molasses
    Place some molasses in a large bowl. Fill the remaining bowl with water. Crickets will jump in the bowl when they smell molasses. Replace the contents of the bowl frequently.

    2.) Non-kill method
    Use sticky traps to catch the crickets, then pull them off the paper and release back outside.

    3.) Repel
    Steep ½ cup of red chilies, red chili powder, or chili sauce in 2 cups of water. Strain the liquid, and dilute it with 2 cups of water. Use it to spray over the plants and insects.

  • I've been searching for a cricket for two days now that's in my mud room that can be heard throughout the house. Thanks.
