Camel cricket prevention tips
In order to keep camel crickets and other pests out, it is important to seal any potential opening on the outside of the house. This means any cracks in the foundation, gaps around the windows and doors, openings around vents and utility entrances and any other potential entry points that would allow small pests in. Other ways to prevent pests is to eliminate potential food sources and correct any moisture issues and leaking pipes.
