Camel / Cave / Stone Crickets

Adult camel, cave and stone crickets are about 1/2 - 1 1/4 inches in body length with the female's egg laying structure often exceeding half its body length. Their color is light to dark brown, often molted with lighter or darker areas. Antennas are threadlike, much longer than the body, with basal segments touching or nearly so. These crickets are also wingless and without sound producing structures. Nymphs are similar to the adults except they are smaller and lack an ovipositor. They get their name from the characteristic “hump” of the back on the insect.

Camel, Cave & Stone Cricket Habits

Camel, cave and stone crickets are commonly found outdoors around buildings. They are typically found in cool, moist situations such as under mulch, stones, railroad ties, woodpiles, debris, etc. They are nocturnal or active at night and hide during the day. Other places they can be found around homes are in wells, drainage culverts/pipes, under A/C units or their concrete pads, sheds, etc. Indoors, they can become problems in damp basements, utility rooms, crawl spaces, garages and occasionally in attics. They often invade structures.
