Abstract/Contents:Discusses a potential need for immediate eradication of mole crickets when noticed on putting greens, and how they destroy greens when they burrow underground and form ridges on the surface. States that mole crickets reproduce quickly, so they should be controlled immediately. Suggests that fumigation with carbon bisulphide is the best option for badly infected areas, but for small infestations, use a .5 pint liquid soap, and .5 cup of sheep dip in 4 gallons of water then injected into the holes.
