Cricket Control in Riverside, CA
In Riverside CA, Crickets prefer to mate and lay their eggs in the soil during the late summer months. They remain in the soil through the winter and do not hatch until late spring or early summer. There are several different types of cricket species that are found in the state of California. The two most common are House Crickets and Field Crickets.
House Crickets are tan or light brownish-yellow in color and often have darker spots as they mature. They have a tendency to gather around the foundation of buildings and doors and can easily enter the home through openings and cracks. They enjoy hiding out during the day and feeding at night. Males create chirping sounds by rubbing their wings together in an attempt to attract females.
Field Crickets are typically larger in size and are shiny black to dark brown in color. Although they enter houses, they prefer to live and breed outdoors. They usually invade homes when they are looking for hiding places. These unwanted pests are known to chew on different fabrics, carpeting, and furs. It is best to obtain pest control services before damage is done.
Crickets are cold-blooded and need warm weather in order to have enough energy to chirp. They chirp at different rates according to the temperature. The higher the temperature, the higher the rate of chirping. These noises can ruin a great backyard barbecue and a good night’s sleep.

Cricket Control Services Offered
Cricket control is needed when a cricket here or there becomes an annoying cricket infestation. It is important to seal all cracks in or around your home that provide for a great entryway. Pay close attention to gaps around windows, doors, and openings such as dryer vents. Also, keep the grass on your property short and eliminate any thick foliage.
A pest control specialist is needed when your cricket problem gets out of hand. They will have a better understanding and know exactly how to get rid of crickets. The two most common practices include:
- Green Method — Sticky traps can capture crickets inside your house by preventing movement once they step on the trap. This method can be time-consuming and is effective for a very small infestation.
- Pesticide Method — When cricket infestations are high, chemicals must often be used. Applications are applied in closets, under stairways, on baseboards, on foundations, and any other place that crickets may hide. Early summer is the best time for application because crickets are still small. Pesticides, however, are effective at any time of the year.
Although crickets are a nuisance and an unwanted pest, they typically do not carry any diseases. They become annoying when their numbers escalate in your home or around areas in your backyard and require immediate attention. Pest control is needed before damage is done inside or outside of your home.
What Our Customers Are Saying
Highly recommend! Nic was so helpful and knowledgeable when it came to our specific situation. He answered all our questions and was very thorough. He showed us each step in the process of catching and removing the gophers and how to recognize new activity. These guys know what they're doing. Thank you Nic!
I had a gopher problem that was driving me crazy and I decided to look for a professional to take care of my issue. After looking around and reading reviews I decided to give Go-pher the kill a call and I'm glad I did. They displayed great customer service and answered all my questions regarding their services. Nick came out to my house for the initial call and he was very informative and extremely professional when it came to gopher catching, he set a couple traps and bait and the following day he came back to discover that he caught two gophers in my lawn. I'm very happy with the service and decided to continue using Gopher the kill's monthly service. Thank you Nick.

We are very pleased with Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control! Their customer service is beyond excellent! They are extremely responsive, friendly, skilled, and knowledgeable. We have an acre, and every kind of pest you can imagine from mice, rats, squirrels, gophers to insects. We had an issue of rats getting into the attic of our home, and they expertly solved the issue. They maintain everything under good control, and it is seemless to us. They send reminder notices regarding their visits, and leave a detailed report of what they did and found. This is a trusted and reliable company, and would highly recommend their services!
We have been fighting gophers on my property for 2 1/2 years. We have a regular pest control guy that seem to be reducing the population but not illuminating the problem.
We hired Go-Pher The Kill and the gophers were gone within 24 hours. I can't even believe it. It has now been almost a month since they initially started, they've come back multiple times and have been very thorough.
They are quick and easy to work it with, their set up was simple. True professionals. If you have gophers hire them!
The best service I have ever had from a pest company. Go-Pher The Kill is on top of it they have been servicing our home for 4 years and I wanted to take a moment and comment on how AWSOME they are. I send an email and get quick response and prompt service. In the last week they came out quick to get rid of a gopher and again this week for a mouse in my attic. The service from their employer Ryan was tremendous, professional and all around an A+++ for the last many years.
This is great company. We first contacted them when we had gopher problems. And then ants and spiders and then rodents that got inside the 3rd car garage wrecking havoc on our stuff. They always try to get somebody to get to the house right away. Nic Shafer is the one always going to our house. He always ring the doorbell to let me know he's going to check the bait boxes in our backyard. Sometimes he calls beforehand. When I see him, he always asks me how everything is going and if there are problems and he always go and check and solve these problems if we have them. He's polite and knows how to get rid of these pests. Great job Nic!
I have been using this company since I moved to Riverside 3 years ago and I'm very happy with them. Gophers were invading our property and they got rid of them very quickly. Anytime there is new activity, Mike is just a call away. He responds promptly and is very efficient. I would definitely recommend them!
Go-Pher The Kill Pest Control is the only company we call to handle our pest issues. Mike is always willing to handle any job we throw his way. Incredibly reliable, efficient, affordable and always goes beyond the call of duty. Last minute phone calls to handle rodent issues are never a problem - Mike has always been there for us. We highly recommend this company to all.
John came out right away and set multiple gopher traps. He was knowledgeable and thorough, even cleaning up the dirt from the gopher mounds. Looking forward to having these destructive rodents permanently removed!
Great company... Joseph is so thorough. He shows up every month like clock work !! I highly recommend them!
