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.  If you are in need of cricket control services, call for your free assessment today!

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 Pest Control Customers Are Saying

  •   These guys are awesome! We had a mole that, despite our best efforts, we could not get rid of.  We reached out to Go-Pher, they provided us a fair estimate and scheduled a day to come out.  Upon arrival they actual slightly decreased the estimate based on the size of our yard. A few days later, they came back and confirmed they caught the mole! They checked back a week later to make sure we didn't have any other intruders and set some bait to make sure they got everything.  What I was most pleased with, however, was the final follow up call we got yesterday.  They called to remind us that our 30 day guaranty period was almost over so just wanted to make sure we haven't had any additional problems.  Really awesome customer service!!

      They caught two gophers in one day. Do not wait to hire them. I tried everything to kill these rodents but was unsuccessful. They came out and set up traps and the next day two were caught. I wasted so much time trying to do it myself that the gophers ended up doing a lot of damage. I'm mad at myself for not calling them earlier.

      I'd been dealing with gophers for a very long time. But once they started to get near the house, it was time to get help.  I saw the truck with the ugly gopher on it and decided that was the company to use.  Nick came out and set traps, returned the next day catching two of those buggers. Nick was very informative and helpful, answered all my exhausting questions. A big thank you.

  •   Excellent company! I just recently completed installing a newly landscaped yard and after a few months of enjoying my yard- it stared to get attacked by gophers.
    I tired to deal with the issue myself (of ridding  the gophers ) for a couple of months with no luck.
    Then Nic came out and noticed the damage, set a few traps for overnight and when he came back the following morning - he was able to catch the 3 gophers that were behind my headaches.
    But what really set Nic apart - was after he was done with removing the gophers he took the time to remove the large dirt piles left by the gophers and blend it all back in to the existing landscaping like they were never there. Nic is awesome and will spend the time to give you some insight on gopher habits.

      Great service. We've been fighting the gophers for the last couple years with no luck. Called Go-Pher The Killer and they took care of the problem. We didn't even have to be home. 3 gophers were caught overnight with no sweat off my back. Great company

      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!

  •   Go-Pher is awesome! You won't be disappointed with this company. I had a gopher problem on my property, which is a little over 1/4 acre, and Nic came out and set about 8 traps. He came by the following week and removed what he had caught, then baited the holes as a final barrier against future gophers. Nic was great! He was on time, very knowledgeable, and was in and out in less than an hour. Thanks Nic.

      The past two years we have had rat(s) in our attic.  We have used Go-Pher the Kill both times and have been extremely happy with their service.  Although we received the full month coverage, the rat was caught early and problem solved.  The pricing is good; we obtained other estimates before settling on this company.
    The "exterminator," Nick, is a very professional and courteous professional.  In addition to setting the traps, he gave up tips and adjustments to make to prevent a recurrence.  Perhaps if we had listened, we wouldn't have had a problem the next year!
    Overall, our experience with Go-Pher the Kill has been great and I have no problem recommending them for your pest killing needs.

      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.

My house had issues with rodents, spiders, ants...when we bought it and these guys have kept ALL of them away for years now. If I do see a spider, I can just call and they'll come back out!
