Mole crickets – a serious lawn pest

Published: Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 09:23 AM.

Baits are more effective when the fast-growing nymphs need a lot of food from late June through September.  The sooner baits are applied after damage is noticed, the more effective they’ll be.  Baits may be applied by hand, but be sure to wear rubber gloves.  For sprays, a garden hose attachment applicator is recommended one that requires 15 to 20 gallons of water passing through the hose to empty a quart jar.

For more information on controlling mole crickets, contact the Gulf County Extension Service at 639-3200 or visit our website or www. and see publication ENY 234, ENY 300.
