I was going to post this in biology, but then changed my mind and decided that I probably should post this in GD since the solution to this might not be a biological one, but might be something physical/chemical/technological. This is probably futile anyway, but does anyone know of a way to deter crickets away from a building? There are TONS of crickets around here, and I end up with one or two inside every night. It's not a big deal, they're the cute variety that I don't mind picking up and putting back outside (I hated the ugly camel crickets we had in Cincinnati), but two nights ago, one decided to jump into my bed with me! :surprised So, now I want to find a way to keep them out! The problem is that I know they're most likely all coming in through the garage door when I drive in and out each day, and from there, finding their way upstairs. I am almost always guaranteed to find one in the entryway after coming in from the garage. So, keeping them out would require something that would deter them far enough from the garage door that they wouldn't hop in as I drive up. Is there any such thing? Oh, and it can't be anything that would interfere with my TV or computer (including wireless network). I know, I know, DocToxyn is going to recommend a lizard of some sort. That's not what I have in mind (I'd have to get a whole herd of lizards with all the crickets around here, and then I'd need something to keep the lizards out of the bed; as cute as they might be, I'm not sharing my bed with them). My friend has cats, and reports that the only outcome is that she then finds leg-less crickets, so we're not going for that option either. In the meantime, I've been improving my cricket-herding skills. Sometimes they're hard to catch, so I just herd them toward the door by prodding with a TV antenna. :rofl: I guess if I can't deter them, I can always turn them into a circus act.
