I have crickets in my light fixtures. Looks like plenty and they are building a nest. People have told me to just leave the light on and that will cook them out and I could just clean them later. I’m not sure that would work. I need a little guidance here so please, can you help me?
Many insects will move to light fixtures for nesting if given the chance. The short list includes stink bugs, ladybugs, silverfish, centipedes, roaches, wasps, bees and crickets. The good news this kind of problem is easy to control.
Get some DRIONE DUST and a HAND DUSTER. Next, open up the infested light fixture by removing it from the ceiling or wall. Vacuum out any live or dead insects. Next, puff some of the Drione into the hole that leads into the wall or ceiling. Drione will both kill insects living in the space but more importantly, its extremely repellent to them so new ones won’t be able to enter anymore once the Drione is applied. And Drione lasts for a year or more inside homes so you don’t have to continuously apply it.
Now to avoid the same problem happening in other areas of the home, do the same treatment to any other fixture you can access. It would be a good idea to do the same treatment to all light switch covers, electric outlet covers and basically any vulnerable “space” or void where cables or pipes go through walls, enter rooms, etc.
Lastly, if the home has an attic or crawl space, dusting these spaces with Drione would be a wise investment too. This way you’ll take away these locations for nesting crickets or anything else that might want to use the area. Use a DUSTIN MIZER to apply the Drione to large open areas.
