The most common cricket in Western Australia is called the house cricket, also known as the brown house cricket.
House Crickets: This species of cricket is said to have originated form South Western Asia but has now spread to most countries around the world through cargo and animal transport. This species is usually brown or grey in colour and is given its name due to its habit of seeking warmth within the home.
