Crawling, nocturnal insects most active at night. They have a distinguishable dark reddish-brown color and are about 5/8 inches long. Easily identifiable by pincers located on the back of their abdomen.
Though a small insect, its high-pitched, chirping sounds can keep you awake at night. Once inside a house, crickets try to hide in out-of-the-way, dark areas where they cannot be easily spotted.
