cinnamonblood is dealing with a cave cricket invasion. Highlights of post:

Given their limited vision, cave crickets will often jump towards any perceived threat in an attempt to frighten it away.
AND A BLOODY GOOD JOB THEY DO OF IT, TOO!

Their large hind legs allow them to jump high and far. [citation needed]
Citation needed? Citation needed??? I got yer citation in my kitchen, motherfucker!

Change outdoor lighting to yellow or sodium vapor bulbs.
I don't know what a "sodium vapor bulb" is, but I'm gonna find out. Shit, I will put spotlights on my lawn if it'll get rid of these things! Caped super heroes will show up, thinking they've been called into action. And I will tell them to go fight the Spider Crickets.

Pick up and discard individual crickets.
PICK THEM UP!? Are you out of your mind!?

Hit insect with fly swatter or crush with shoe.
Or a phonebook. Phonebooks work really well, too.

Spray household with "ant and cockroach" insecticide in floor areas where camel crickets hide or are seen; this is a last resort of limited benefit.
Last resort? No, my last resort is to buy a dozen lizards from the pet store and let them loose in my house and hope they will EAT the crickets. That is my last resort.

Context may need to nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure. QFT er, QWP. Though, QFT too certainly.
