Crickets don't just vanish in the daytime. They lay low and don't chirp but they are still right there. Their predators know where to find them.

If you're overrun with them at night despite having birds and lizards during the day the number one thing you can probably do is reduce the outdoor lighting.

Importing non-native species to try to solve this problem isn't a good solution.
