Mole crickets

Zone 28469-5865 | Anonymous added on September 27, 2018 | Answered

We have been informed that our lawn is affected by mole crickets. As a homeowner, what product & application can I do as a homeowner. I understand it is best to treat when the larvae are present but that is long gone. HELP!

Here's some general information with some treatment choices.
I would go with the FMC Triple Crown although more expensive. It has a triple whammy of two potent pyrethroids, bifenthrin and cypermethrin, and a systemic long lasting neonicotinoid 'imidacloprid'.
All ingredients are low toxicity for people and pets. Keep it away from fish ponds and honeybees.
Second choice would be Talstar with bifenthrin, a potent contact spray for immediate knock down of the active pest infestation.
Of course you should read the label and directions thoroughly for safe and effective use.
