Did you know crickets are one of the most destructive insects? They eat fabrics (clothes), carpet, vegetables, fruit, and paper. This is why the population should not be left untreated. Not to mention that annoying chirping, which is only made by the males rubbing the edges of their forewings together to impress females. Another way to inform you of their presence is droppings around your house that look like someone dropped some black pepper.
