Abstract/Contents: "Mole crickets have traditionally only been classed as a minor turfgrass pest in Australia. In 1994 a new species of mole cricket to Australia was identified from samples collected from a golf course. The new species was identified as Scapteriscus didactylus. Literature revealed that S. didactylus and other Scapteriscus mole crickets were significant turfgrass pests in other parts of the world. In Australia S. didactylus is causing major turfgrass damage and control methods are proving to be ineffective. This papers presents the results of an insecticide trial evaluating a new chemical for the control of S. didactylus. The new chemical, fipronil, was found to provide exceptional long term control of S. didactylus."
