Crickets in the bathroom

I read the post about crickets in the basement, but I have crickets in my bathroom. Its a medium size bath with a double whirlpool tub. That is where I usually see them. Most of the time there are two in the tub and maybe another one in another part of the bathroom. HOW DO THEY GET IN??? What can I do? Its gross. I believe this bathroom is on a concrete slab and next to an outside wall of the house on one wall and the garage on the other.

Crickets enter structure from outdoors. A regular insecticide treatment around foundation and perimeter of structure will tend to keep insect pests and their predators at bay. Treating the foundation will provide a barrier that should stop crickets from entering. You need to spray at least 3 feet up the side of your home and at least five feet out from structure on ground. Spray baseboards inside home with residual insecticide. Glue traps are also handy for indoor pest control. Insecticide dust can be puffed into electric outlets,
switchplate covers, light fixtures, and cracks behind baseboards and trim.
