Sevendust might work. I don't know if they have that in your area but it works here on a plethera of insects and such.

Sorry dude, get used to it. The only way you're getting rid of them to the point you don't hear them is to use industrial pesticide and a crop duster.

I still think the tarantulas would work. I had a pet tarantula I cought once, and that thing loved crickets. And tarantulas are very quiet.

I tried a google search, but couldn't find anything helpful...

I'm gonna go see if I can find some chemcials. It'* really quite bad. I can ignore a couple crickets, but there are some out here that are LOUD. And they never stop. 24/7 they are chirping. It'* driving me nuts.

I have had the same problem.
You have to locate the area where they are hiding and blast it with chemicals.
If you are good, you can find them and manually eradicate them one at a time.

I had one in my Garage last week that really bugged me. I discovered it was hiding under the Bonne wheel. Needless to say, the Bonne killed that one.

I bought some spray, so I have been periodically spraying the areas where they are at. The area by my window is a patch of large stones and some bushes. They hide in there. As I was spraying, many would come out and run away. I will keep this up and hopefully it will help.
