Q.Mole Crickets and Reseeding Grass

Zone 00777 | diplolaplace added on March 12, 2014 | Answered

Sometimes (when I am in the mood) in the late afternoon, I go over the areas where I know mole crickets live twice with lemon scented dishwashing detergent. I’ve captured live over 300 of them, all sizes. I have not yet applied any insecticide, just soapy water. My question is: will seeding bring back the Zoysia Manila grass or do I have to replace the desolate areas with new grass? I am waiting for summer to apply insecticide.

Thank you.

Seeding may help. I think that until the mole cricket problem is fully addressed, doing anything more than seeding would just be a waste of money and time as the area would just be attacked again.
