Crickets chirping outside your home can be relaxing and enjoyable on a cool summer night. However, crickets in your home are an entirely different story. House crickets make their way into homes for survival. When colder weather hits, they go in search of a warm place to spend the fall and winter. When trying to attract females crickets the males will rub their front wings together, making a loud chirping sound, which may be an enjoyable sound outdoors but not so much inside the home.
