What to do about mole crickets

Symptoms

Our “gogga” of the month for August (the mole cricket) makes unevenly raised burrows in the lawn and/or patches of dying grass

What does this mean for me/my plants?

These critters will ruin the lawn and if not treated, will burrow deeper and deeper into the soil, making it more difficult to treat them.

Suggested Action

Mole crickets are destructive pests on lawns. A contact /systemic insecticide drench should be directed toward young nymphs. Treatments must commence from October to early April, on the more vulnerable nymphs. This is more effective than later treatments on larger mole crickets. Visit your local GCA garden centre forĀ advice on the best insecticide for you!
