I have just read an article that says to check and treat pastures for mole crickets. What is the importance of treating for this insect. And would you treat the ground or the cattle with an insecticide?

mole crickets kill grass, ever noticed a circular patch of dead grass in your pasture? look for a big brown spot.

Where are you at? My only experience with mole crickets is in the south...All of you grass will be dead if infested. They are under the soil and sometimes in plants that you buy at the market. If you kill them with granules...like diazon and water they will come to the surface to die. They look like grasshoppers/crickets underground, hence the name "mole crickets". It can be a real problem...Hope this helps, donna
