Paula 11: Crickets 0
I have been catching those nasties with dog food. You read that correctly: dog food. Maybe cat food would work too, I don't know since I don't have either a dog or a cat. Now, here is the secret ingredient: DUCT TAPE. Yes, my peeps, duct tape. Cut off a piece about the length of your hand, fold under the ends so you can stick it to the floor with the majority of the tape sticky side up, place a dog (or may a cat?) kibble smack dab in the center of the tape and wait. Wait overnight because crickets are nocturnal. In the morning you will more than likely have a cricket or two stuck to the tape. Roll it up and dispose.
I have found the spot where they are making their entrance and got it caulked. Hopefully that will take care of it. Keep your fingers crossed.
