What Are Crickets?

Commonly encountered in yards, basements and barns, crickets are jumping insects typically measuring from about 9/16 to just over an inch long. These insects vary in color from brown to shiny black, with leathery wings and long antennae. Eggs hatch in late spring or early summer – those nymphs grow into adults in about 45 days. The males of these newly adult crickets will begin singing to attract females at this time and continue throughout the summer.
