Mole Crickets Insecticide

Gryllotalpidae Insecticide

Description of Mole Crickets (Gryllotalpidae):
Mole crickets are a type of cricket that resembles a mole. They live underground, so you will not really see them. They grow 1 to 2 inches in length, have black eyes, and front legs like shovels that are used for digging. They mostly cause damage to lawns through tunneling through the top 1 to 2 inches of soil, uprooting grass plants and causing them to dry out and perish.

Instructions:
Since the preferred grass areas are subject to constant invasion in early spring by the active adult stage, it is can be difficult maintain control of adult mole crickets. It is ideal to treat the areas as late in the day as possible and water immediately after application with up to 0.5 inches of water. To ensure maximum contact when soil is dry, it is necessary to irrigate prior to treatment to bring the adult mole crickets closer to the soil surface. To obtain optimal control of potential nymphal populations, the grass areas preferred by adult mole crickets should be treated at immediately prior to peak hatch stage.

Label Rate:
0.5 - 1 fluid ounces per 1,000 sqft
Cost Effectiveness:
Covers 96000 - 192000 square feet
at a cost of
$0.25 - $0.51 per 1,000 sqft
Instructions:
Treat grass areas that are preferred by adult mole crickets in the spring just before peak egg hatch. Young nymphs are more vulnerable to insecticidal treatment at this stage because they are close to the soil surface where the insecticide is most concentrated and thereby providing the most efficient control. For larger more damaging nymphal stages later in the year, it may be necessary to use higher application rates more frequent. It is ideal to treat the areas as late in the day as possible and water immediately after application with up to 0.5 inches of water. To ensure maximum contact when soil is dry, it is necessary to irrigate prior to treatment to bring the adult mole crickets closer to the soil surface.
