How To Get Rid Of Potato Bugs or Jerusalem Crickets

November 18, 2018

Ontario, California pest control companies often get calls about an insect referred to as a potato bug, but it's actually a Jerusalem cricket.

Jerusalem crickets are usually found on lawns, driveways, or in garages.  They love damp places. They are often found buried in natural objects that give off an additional shade or hold in moisture such as rock piles or logs. They are seen during the fall and winter the most.
