Yes, I Do Love Nature, But I Don't Want Some Of It In My House

Because we have had some pretty cool nights here in Los Angeles, crickets have been coming inside. This happens each year when a few come in over the colder months, and in the past, I have caught them when I could (not so easy) and then released them outside. I kind of like crickets, and as a kid I really liked some insects and even thought of becoming an entomologist. But because there have been more than a few, and in a couple different rooms, I did some research. It seems house crickets can cause some damage and they can also carry disease. I was unaware of those dangers. So regrettably, I am now killing them which is much easier than catching them and taking them outside. Sigh.
