Mole Crickets

BIFENTHRIN INSECTICIDES KILL MOLECRICKETS
Bifen IT Concentrate, Talstar Concentrate, Talstar Granules
Timing is of utmost importance when treating for molecrickets.  Many people will treat for this pest during the mating season, due to the sight of adults, their exit holes and damaged turf grass.  This damaged grass is usually due to a fungus that pops up a week or two after spring application of weed & feed fertilizers.  (Nitrogen in fertilizer feeds grass fungi.)
In the Florida panhandle (for example), adults are seen in February and March.  Treatment to kill the damaging nymphs should not begin until the last of April or first week of May.
In middle Georgia, this treatment begins 3 to 4 weeks later.
Trying to kill adult molecrickets during mating season is usually fruitless.  Treating for nymps is very effective and will help save your lawn.
Adult mole crickets are plump, winged and 1 to 1.25 inches long. They are seldom seen, because, like moles, they stay underground most of the time.
The adult cricket can fly and mates twice a year: once in spring and again in the fall.
During the mating seasons you can easily see their exit holes that are about an inch in diameter or slightly larger.
Mole cricket nymphs are wingless but look like small adults. The nymphs can become numerous and cause great damage to turf grasses during the warm summer months.
Their damage appears as brown spongy areas within normal green, healthy grass.  While inspecting, you will notice the grass has been eaten just below the surface.  This is due to the molecrickets feeding separates the plant from its roots.
Mole crickets are especially fond of Bermuda and centipede grass, but have also been found in St. Augustinegrass.
At this time, insecticides that contain Bifenthrin (at professional strength) are the best for controlling molecrickets.  Bifen IT and Talstar are examples of professional strength Bifenthrin.
