Getting Rid of Crickets!
July 21, 2008 2:42 AM Subscribe
I live in a town that every year thousands upon thousands of crickets (field crickets) rise up and try to take over. I just got my first house with a yard and won't have free exterminators at my disposal. How do I nuke my yard sufficiently that I won't have them everywhere inside and out?

The neighborhood I live in doesn't allow pets, so I'm not worried about anything toxic... but I need to do something soon as the crickets will start showing up very soon (they are already starting!)
I don't exagerate when I say "thousands" either. Ideally I'd like something cheap that I can use on the entire yard that will keep them from coming in or kill them for at least a few months.
I'm generally pretty cool with less destructive bugs, but when it gets to the point where every step is "crunch crunch crunch" it's more than I can deal with. Thanks!
