Treating Now For Mole Crickets Futile

What do you recommend I use to
plug into the bare spots? I don't want
my yard to look like a patchwork
quilt! Do you know anything about
carpet grass and where I can get
plugs in the area?
1 live in a wet area with sandy
soils. Carpct grass has done well and
1 have found it easy to maintain.
Any suggestions will be appreciat
Answer: You arc right about the
I talked to a friend who owns a
seed store in Wilmington. Tom told
me that he expects a clean, new ship

The long-term solution to your
problem is going to revolve around
controlling mole crickets.
Mole cnckcls arc a group of sub
terranean crickets that feed on other
insects, plant roots, or decaying plant
matter. The tawny mole cricket is
one of the most damaging species of
mole crickets to turf grass.
The mole cricket moves along un
der the soil surface feeding on grass
r<x)ts. I have seen areas that appear
to have been literally tilled up due to
the heavy feeding of the tawny mole
cricket. When the living s<xl cover is
removed, the soil is much more
prone to erosion and leaching.
Mole crickets feed actively in the
autumn and spring. During cold win
icr months, dry weather or adverse
soil conditions, mole crickets have
been known to tunnel up to lour feet
deep into the ground and become in
I recently attended a scientific
meeting in which I heard a Florida
entomologist estimate that mole
cricket damage had cost the Florida
turf industry over S60 million in the
No turf grass is immune to mole
cricket damage. The best time of
year to treat for mole crickets is dur
ing June, July and August. The juve
nile mole crickets arc much easier to
kill at this time because of their
small size and proximity to the soil
For the homeowner with severe
mole cricket damage, I would sug

in the late fall and winter is futile,
not environmentally sound, nor rec
For those of us living in the coas

crickets are here to stay along with
cockroaches and fire ants. 1 am send
