Millions of crickets invade Nevada community

The Mormon crickets converged on Elko, Nevada this past week.

They’ve been in the shrubs, on the street, and even climbing the walls.

Jeff Knight, entomologist for the Nevada Department of Agriculture, said the crickets have a four-to-six-year cycle and then they disappear for a while.

The dormant period for Elko ended in 2019 so now they’re back.
