Cave and camel crickets are of little economic importance except as a nuisance in buildings and homes, especially basements.
They are usually “accidental invaders” that wander in by mistake from adjacent areas. They generally reproduce indoors, especially in situations that provide continuous dark, moist conditions, such as a basement shower or laundry area, as well as organic debris to serve as food. Cave crickets have very large hind legs with “drumstick-shaped” femora and long, slender antennae.

They are brownish in color and rather humpbacked in appearance, always wingless, and up to two inches/5 cm long in body and 10 cm (4 inches) for the legs. On baby crickets the body may appear translucent.
As the name implies, cave crickets are commonly found in caves. However, most species live in other cool, damp situations such as in wells, rotten logs, stumps and hollow trees, and under damp leaves, stones, boards, and logs. Occasionally, they prove to be a nuisance in the basements of homes. For more information on Cave Cricket Removal Morris County NJ contact Assure Pest Control.
