Crickets have invaded the Sooner State, they're literally everywhere. Weather conditions in Oklahoma this spring and summer have caused the cricket population to explode. How do we battle back and win the war?


As bad as it is in Oklahoma right now, it could be worse, a lot worse. There's a small town in Nevada that has been completely taken over by crickets. It's like a plague, similar to what we went through a few years ago.

Even though we aren't dealing with the numbers Nevada is, it's still pretty bad here in the Sooner State. Depending on where you live someplaces are better or worse than others when it comes to all the crickets.


It's said that having a cricket in your house is good luck. But having 20 or more, not so much. Plus with all the chirping it's hard to get any rest, much less sleep. They do make a ton of noise at night, plus they really stink.
