Mole Cricket Management
Mole Crickets and Lawn Damage
Mole crickets are underground pests that can cause extensive damage to your lawn. In early spring, these clawed pests emerge from the soil to lay eggs.
Once hatched, mole crickets tunnel through your lawn, disrupting plant growth by damaging their roots – this typically occurs in late summer through fall. Signs of an infestation include small tunnels, a spongy feel underfoot (that’s because of the tunneling), and an eventual browning and dying of grass, which typically occurs in patches.
