During warm weather, house crickets typically live outdoors and are especially fond of garbage dumps. Adults are very attracted to lights, and rest on vertical surfaces such as light poles and house walls. However, when cold weather approaches, they seek shelter in houses and sheds because of the moisture and warmth they provide.
Outdoors, they can feed on plants, dead or live insects, including other crickets. Indoors, they can feed on fabric, eating large areas, leaving holes and are especially attracted to clothes soiled with perspiration.
Clothing and carpets can become damaged when house crickets enter homes. They typically feed on the surface, leaving the area roughened from pulling the fibers loose while eating.
