Ha ha consider yourself lucky you never lived in my house. For years I have had reptiles and alot of those crickets for food escaped into my unfinished basement, which has an oil burner they can hide in all year long, and bits of stale cat food to eat, paradise for them! At one time I had over 40 male crickets chirping. It was like sleeping outside 24/7!
They only stayed in the basement, so we didnt do anything to kill them, plus poisions around my cats didnt make me comfortable anyway. My cats would bring them to me in there mouth alive and unharmed, so I would let those ones go outside in warmer weather.
And besides the other crickets, the black ones, we also have spiders,pillbugs,beetles, and moths during the Summer! Not for the faint of heart!
