Cricket season is in full swing. I will put up with a few field (black) crickets inside occasionally, but not those house (brown) crickets, which breed indoors and chew fabrics and wood.

Has anybody put InTice 10 granules around the perimeter of their house? Its active ingredient is boric acid, which crickets and ants eat and then die. The Terro ant baits (liquid in containers) have been very good when applied early, as the worker ants bring it back for the breeder queen to eat.

Tiny ants are small enough to get inside, and the crickets wait for an open door to jump in. I want to keep them all OUTSIDE but not harm other animals.
