    Default Re: Crickets in the basement - They've got to go!

    I have the solution Mossflowerwoods needs to purchase some green leotards and a flute of course some little pointed booties and a nice pointed cap with a feather. Now play the flute and dance around in the yard. As soon as the crickets start following you could lead them to the chicken yard where they would be devoured. looks like we have a plan. now just to get some cameras to record the event. As you see once presented with a problem i will find a solution. do they have Yuengling beer in "Old Virginia''

    Professor Lockhaven,
    I stock the fridge with Yuengling Black & Tan. It is my daily bread... For special occasions I chill some Guinness.

    WOW, you have an overactive imagination. I might be able to win the $10,000 for funniest home videos with this "solution" but I do not think the crickets will go for it...

    You are something else sir...

    After reading all the way thru the BS here is what I do every fall in my basement and 36x40 shed. Put hedge balls in every corner and along the wall I use about a dozen for both buildings just put them in the corners. It will amaze you the crickets and also spiders will dissappear. in the spring you will need to discard them as they will rot. Yes i was a skeptic also but it works, I am told there is a natural repellant in the hedge ball.

    David you might not have any of them where you live, they are fairly common around here. Looking at the 1997 Iowa study, they seem to denigrate the effectiveness as a insect repellant, but the Wikipedia write up seems to say they are effective.. I don't know, but have always heard "old timers" say they are a good insect repellant.
