OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (KFOR) – Oklahoma City downtown business owners have their hands full corralling brown field crickets.

It is a full-blown infestation in the Automobile Alley business district.

“It’s basically just an infestation of crickets. Everywhere, literally everywhere,” Steve Swanson of Schlegel Bicycle Shop said.

Some businesses have hired exterminators, others are waiting for the hard-shelled insects to fly away.

“Well they were just all over the front door and so I was trying to unlock the door and get in and turn off the alarm and I was just trying to hop around to get away from them,” Leslie Clark said.

Businesses in the Norman area are reporting a similar invasion.
