Mole Crickets

I have tawny mole crickets and they are destroying my lawn, including the new sod. I do not want to use poison, as I see the bluebirds and other birds hunting bugs in my yard. What can I do to address this problem without using poison? I am certain that this is the bug. I poured soapy water on them and caught one (of dozens that came crawling out of the ground). Brought it in and looked it up.
