Chirp of the Town

AMARILLO, TEXAS - Almost everyone has been a witness to the Panhandle's cricket invasion.

Several pest control companies are working overtime dealing with increased complaints. Experts say a summer swarm is typical, but the recent rains have made the problem larger than normal.

Exterminators say the best way to protect your house is to make sure all cracks and openings are sealed up. It also doesn't hurt keep your yard sprayed with insecticide, but if the crickets are already inside, you'll probably need professional's help to get rid of them. Or you can wait a couple of months for the bugs to head back into hibernation with cooler temperatures.
