Ok so I have this cricket problem and I want to kill them off ASAP.

I went to my boat storage today and noticed a box full of crickets. I kicked this box out of my storage and started stomping on the crickets like a fool. Then I stomped on the box and smashed the heck out of it. I killed off 250 or so crickets and if I had a can of brake cleaner I would have torched the box. Anyway how do I kill off the rest.

Fog my barn with a fogger?

Will Moth balls work?

If these little bastards make a nest in my boat I will be furious. I did put the boat cover on to try and keep them out. I don't want a nest or them putting holes in my belongings or upholstery. I've had this barn for 5 years and never had a cricket problem.



Thanks guys

Oh and I did finally win the wasp war!!! Yay me

throw a few hundred moth balls in the boat with a cup or two of andro orthane that'll keep just about anything out

Ortho Home Defense spray, you can spray the outside and inside perimeter of the barn and it will take care of all those pests. Its safe for dogs and cats once it dries and gives up to a year's worth of protection. I had issues with crickets and spiders in my basement and sprayed the outside of my house and the perimeter of my basement and i have not seen anything but the dead corpses of the spiders, crickets and those nasty house centipedes

Nice try, but not exactly Kyles style. :)

I'm wanting to see the video replay of a grown man doing a tap dance around the barn and on a box with the sound of crickets in the background! 8p

So I went to my storage facility today and told them about my cricket problem and they gave me another unit to store my boat in until I can set 3 bug bombs (over kill) going off right now as we speak. Then I am going to spray the home defense 1 gallon and I'm using a pump sprayer and then another gallon of spectracide in the pump sprayer, then use a gas powered yard broom to sweep it out.

We will see how this works.

You're gonna need a gas mask for 6 months just to go in there after all that!

Ok so I went way overboard on the killing today. It took 3 hours to put all of my stuff back where it belongs and clean up the dead. It was so amazing that I used my big Rigid shop back to suck up the dead for a pic.

After the bombs went off I turned on the fan so I could breathe. After 2 gallons of spray was put out.........well yes it was hard to be in there but I had to put everything back so I had to step outside a few times for fresh air.

Hopefully I won the war on the first strike this time and this doesn't turn into the wasp problem :D

Wanna create a Craig's list add?

So you take the pic making me look like a snake charmer that rides a camel to the greasy bastard from the tv show fast n loud.

You just keep digging your hole deeper.

I recall that you got my shipment from Ft Worth to KC just fine.......LOL

I'll get a cricket cage and put it in the $5 ship anywhere box at the post office. There will be a 2 day turn around.

I catch the crickets and ship them to you and you deal with the bastard kids from Craigslist that will come to your house and beat you down on price.

We will become millionaires.
