Adult and nymph mole crickets

Which one causes the most damage?

Mole cricket adults and nymphs

  • Adult mole crickets are plump, winged and 35mm to 30mm long.
  •  They are seldom seen, because, like moles, they stay underground most of the time.
  • They fly and mate twice a year, spring and autumn.
  • At this time you will find their exit holes of an inch or more. Mole cricket nymphs are wingless but look like small adults.
  • The nymphs can become very numerous and cause great damage to your grass during the warm summer months. 
  • Control methods aimed at eliminating mole cricket nymphs yield the best results, simply because they are easier to kill than adults.
