Creepy, crawly infestation 

Crickets are everywhere. They’re climbing walls in curtains at neighborhood stores and keeping us up all night with those chirps, chirps, chirps, chirps ... chirps. Chirps. Chirps.

The insects have invaded the temperate Sooner State, and pictures also have swarmed social media feeds. Entomologists at Oklahoma State University said heat and drought this year helped fuel the frenzy, following rains in July and August.

So, no, it’s not that horrible joke you told.
