    Other than tearing the drywall apart. This mother fucking cricket somehow found a way inside the wall from my backyard. I have tried everything. Spraying the outside wall with insecticide. Banging the wall, trying to get the cricket to leave. He took residence inside the wall last year. The POS didn't die and is back again this season. I never knew a cricket could stay alive that long. I guess the last cricket could have laid eggs and this a new one. I am running out of solutions. I hate to call an exterminator because they are total scam artists.

    i've always been told that a cricket in your house is a sign of good luck.


    inside your wall means the death of your first born. sorry

    honestly,if he's been there that long and he's making you crazy, I would zero in where you think he's at ,and punch threw the wall and take him out..replacing a small patch of wall is minor

    Maybe open the wall behind the couch or cabinet and put one of those sticky mouse traps near the hole?
