Q.Mole Crickets

Zone Juncos, Puerto Rico 00777 | diplolaplace added on January 22, 2014 | Answered

I definitely have mole crickets and it seems to be spreading. They started at the back of my house where I have planted an avocado tree, acerola bush, cranberry tree and palm trees. Right now it’s late January and I haven’t done anything to stop their spreading. What can I do in the meantime before June/July to chemically kill them? Thank you.

You can apply insecticide any time of the year for mole cricket control, it is just that it is most effective in the summer months. But, if they are causing damage now, applying pesticide now will at least reduce the population and the damage they are creating.
