My family and I moved here about two months ago from St. Louis. We live at the border of Wesley Chapel/Monroe in a new development. We have crickets everywhere in our yard, and now they are getting into the house! YUCK! Is this normal for this time of year, or are the crickets especially bad this year? We bought some diatomaceous earth to spread around outside, but the monsoon rains have prevented us from doing that. Just wondering if we are experiencing a plague or what?

It's probably a combination of a few things, most likely mainly due to the fact that you're in a new development and all the land in the area was stirred up. I would assume it'll be better next year. Also note that it's a Cicada year...not sure if they've hit your area or not.

Yeah, I haven't seen a single cricket this year, honestly. I guess all the black snakes and frogs ate them,
