Crickets

 

sarasota-pest-control-cricket.jpgFood
Crickets are omnivores and scavengers feeding on organic materials, as well as decaying plant material, fungi and seedling plants.

 

Habitat
They live under rocks, logs, in meadows, pastures and along roadsides. Many are nocturnal.

 

Predators
Spiders, some wasps, ground beetles, birds, small rodents and lizards are their predators.

 

Interesting Behaviors
To attract mates, males produce a sound made by rubbing their forewings against each other. The resulting chirping sound is picked up by the female’s ears on her front legs. The chirp sounds are different for each species so that individuals can find their own species. Females lay eggs in the soil with their ovipositor.

 

Impact on the Ecosystem

Positive
They renew soil minerals by breaking down plant material. They are also an important source of food for other animals.

 

Negative
They may injure seedlings and large numbers can be destructive. Male’s songs can be quite loud.

We are Certified to the Highest Industry Standards.  Less than 400 of the 17,800 plus pest control companies in the USA are awarded the QualityPro designation, which is the pest control industry’s, “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval”.

NaturZone has been providing award winning green pest control solutions to homes and businesses since 1988 with stunning success.

 

When we started in 1988 the pest control industry trend was to make heavy applications of pesticides on a monthly basis to all areas of the structure. Most people thought our concept of green pest control would only be attractive to environmentalists and it was met with a great deal of skepticism within the pest control industry.

 

What we soon found out was that homeowners and businesses were interested in utilizing less toxic pest control solutions as long as they could get a good result. Initially green pest control technology was a hard sell due to a great deal of doubt about the effectiveness of our programs. However, after successfully providing service to major hospitals, schools and office building clients that would testify to the effectiveness of our concept things began to change. Soon in our hometown of Sarasota we became recognized as a leading commercial pest control company, which just happened to be green.

 

As the public became more interested in green pest control solutions the company growth began to explode.  Our Sarasota based pest control business has more than doubled between 2005 and 2010 and we continue with annual double digit growth each year. In 2010 we expanded our Sarasota operation to cover Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

 

We successfully started to license the concept in the mid-2000’s and now have licensees spreading our green pest control concept around the world; we are now in the USA, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.

 

Interestingly enough the pest control industry that once laughed at our green pest control concept is now heading where we have been going for almost 30 years. In fact most progressive pest control companies today either already have or will soon launch a green pest control system. The NaturZone difference is that the only program we have had since 1988 is effective green pest control services.

 

Over the years NaturZone has been nationally recognized as a leader in providing award winning green pest control solutions to homes and businesses. We look forward to bringing our expertise to you.
