EEEK - there was a really big cricket in my fridge!

How the heck did it get there? He was in the drink section of the fridge. Thought I heard a really loud cricket last night but I couldn’t find it. Found it today. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK. Anyone else ever get critters in their appliances?

Did you recently buy fresh produce? That would be my guess as to its origins. On the positive side it means your vegetables weren’t poisoned too badly :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Surprise visitor in the fridge, yikes. Could the cricket have hitchhiked on a piece of produce? Our CSA vegetables in the summer occasionally harbor a guest bug because the farm doesn’t use pesticides and sprays.

Haven’t yet had a cricket come in that way, though.

Hmm, no, I did not buy any yesterday -

A hitchhiking bug tucked in produce has hidden in our fridge for a week sometimes. It’s as if the cold in the veggie bin put them into hibernation. The bug woke up upon getting a little warmer.

Still might not explain your cricket. Some people say crickets are good luck, so at least there’s that. :wink:

Speaking of cricket try this. It will take your mind off things.

You will also learn how cricket is scored.

My best score is 162.
