You will often find crickets near a food source. Crickets like to eat cellulose. Wood, paper, and cardboard are all made of cellulose.

Crickets are most often found at ground level, in small hiding spaces, to hide from predators.

You can also use an insecticide labeled for indoors. Wash the area after removing dead cricket with a 10% bleach solution to sanitize.

Alternatively, if you can locate and access the insect, just use a fly swatter. After all, your objective is to kill the cricket.

You can try catching them instead.
