Hi. I haven't used a pesticide in years, but am getting frustrated to the
point that I feel I need to find a solution.
My basement is infested with camel crickets. I've tried a Bioganics spray,
which works, but the level of the infestation is well beyond that at this
point. Thousands of little tiny baby crickets have just hatched and I'm not
only grossed out, I am worried about what will happen when they grow to full
size. It will then be at the biblical plague level!
So, a google search of "safe + pesticide" yielded little only poisonous
pesticides. Does anybody have any links or suggestions where I might find
relatively safe foggers for use in the basement?
Thanks for your help.
My parents house gets those, too. My dad accidentally discovered that those
crickets are attracted to the glue on duct tape. He puts strips around the
edges of the basement floor sticky-side up and they go right to it and get
stuck and he then disposes of them. That's all they've had to use for those
ugly creepy bugs.
Try changing your search to organic+pesticide and you might
come up with something. Also, you might want to use
camel+crickets in your search. I did a search for cluster
flies as that is a problem I have and found all kinds of
organic pesticides, including boric acid.

The insecticides in foggers won't have a residual so
they only will be good as a contact kill. The best
solution to clean them out would be to have the space
under the house lightly dusted with an insecticidal dust
such as a product from ECOPCO though Drione or
Deltadust will give quicker results. And if you don't
want an insecticide on the basement floor, place glue
boards around the baseboard.

but they are still getting in.
geckos. we got geckos and anoles and they both eat crickets like crazy. Ingrid
