I'll never kill a cricket again - EVER - BE WARNED!!!!!!
True story, you can't make this stuff up.

Crickets make excellent bluegill bait. Ive used them since I was a kid. No more. Never again.

Recently we had a run of bad luck, all three of our cars broke down last weekend, major breakdowns, expensive ones. One went down Saturday morning. One that afternoon and the other that night. All were well maintained and in good shape, good shape prior to breaking down that is.

Sunday my wife and I were having breakfast in a local restaurant and we were talking about the cricket invasion. It happens every few years at this time. Suddenly there are crickets everywhere, gazillions of them. It usually lasts about three weeks to a month then they go back to normal levels.

She said I killed three of them Friday night in the house.

No, dont say that. Its really bad luck to kill a cricket in the house. That probably explains the three breakdowns. I teased her. Ive always heard not to kill a cricket in the house, so I never do.

She looked at me kind of funny. Dont care, they are nasty looking and I wont have them in the house and Im not about to pick one up and carry it outside. The conversation drifted on to other things.

Monday night she was driving home, in the dark, miles from the nearest house and had a flat tire. Tuesday morning she told me she had killed another cricket just hours before the flat tire.

Wednesday evening, just at dark she runs into the house white as a ghost and shaking like a leaf. A snake just dropped out of a tree right next to me. I was watering the grass and heard a plumpf sound, looked down and a copperhead was almost on my foot. The damn thing fell out of a tree and almost on my head! After she calmed down several hours later mind you she said she had killed a cricket just minutes before going outside.

Now, I am not inordinately superstitious, no more than average. ButIm not killing any more crickets, not on purpose. Ill find other bait. AT the rate the luck was running bad with increasing intensity and shorter time frames the next one killed might explode and send shrapnel flying.

Yesterday she told me she went into the kitchen to cook lunch and a cricket was on top of the stove. She told me she told it You can have the f.....g stove.

That's my girl!

Why do people feel that they have to kill creatures who are not threats to them? Crickets won't bite, just catch them and kick them outside.

Its also a good idea not to stand in the middle of a mushroom circle. I did that once and was sick as hell for 12 hours. I had been to an ac/dc concert and was drunk but that's totally irrelevant . I was fine until I stepped into the circle damn it

I don't let my boys kill things unless it's something trying to bite them. They have also learned now, if you hear mom scream, there is probably a stray toad in the basement or on my deck that needs to be returned to a place away from the house :)

It's a stoopid bug, don't be retarded, I shot 4 chipmunks with my blowgun today and that makes about 35 for this spring, if there was "karma" my house would have burned down years ago, I call bullshit on this stoopid superstitious crap.

What about flies? I guess when you kill them it is because they are bugging, so that is a reason. I kill flies when they are in the house but I often wonder if I should.

there are different types of crickets, though. Were these the real crickets or the pretend kind?

that's a pretty bad run of luck, I must say.

I love crickets. I tried to keep them as pets when I was a very young child.

I wish I had more of them around my house, but my cat dispatches pretty much anything that manages to make it inside.

What's next is to build a bat house and hopefully attract bats. They can eat up to 1,000 mosquitos per hour, each. And hopefully they will eat a few crickets too.

Balls? From an anonymous poser hiding behind a mask? Now that's funny. Ever had a poisonous snake fall out of a tree next to you in near darkness? Bet you would run screaming like a girl. I had a water moccasin fall into a small boat with me once - I gave him the boat, and took my balls with me.

I like crickets too, haven't killed one inside in several decades now and other than for fish bait don't kill them outside either. Of course after this past weekend the outies are safe from me now too. I like listening to them when they are outside, but they can be a bit annoying when they are in the bedroom and start singing at 2am.
