Cricket Infestation Invades Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Okla. -

We've all seen crickets, and heard them! Usually harmless. Their sounds for some, soothing.

That's not the case in Oklahoma.

These pictures tell a really disgusting story. Experts say that a cool, wet weather is to blame for a cricket invasion.

They are swarming the place.

Look at these pictures. It's really an infestation.

People in Oklahoma are sharing their pictures all over social media.

The crickets are swarming buildings and sidewalks and are giving off a smell like rotten meat.

People say the noise is annoying, too. It's a constant shrieking chirp.

Residents are being told not to stomp them- it'll make it worse, because they eat each other's carcasses.
