"With all the lights around, people were having to dodge them," he said. "That was a frenzy."
Jervis said he is seeing an increase in calls from people wanting to know what to do about crickets. He suggests vacuuming loose crickets and varying the times that lights are on.
Stomping on the bugs may seem like a good idea, but Jervis said that can backfire and cause the population to grow.
"We want to kill them to keep them from moving, but when you kill them, the other ones are going to come in and eat the dead ones," he said.
Grantham said crickets will eat just about anything, including plant material and each other.
"Sometimes when they're younger, they do practice cannibalism, and when they get older, they do eat dead crickets," he noted.
When will they be gone? Grantham said to give it another week, but some Oklahomans would say the sooner, the better.
