Controlling Mole Crickets Naturally

Mole crickets are especially destructive lawn pests. While there are pesticides available, they're not always effective. But there's also a natural way to control mole crickets. Homeowners can purchase beneficial nematodes and apply them, via water, to their lawns. These tiny worms enter the mole crickets and kill them with a bacterium that they carry. Best of all, they're not harmful to people, animals, or landscape plants.
