Some pesticides and products are available to control a mole cricket infestation. Some of the stronger products can only be handled by professionals, and pest control companies can be contacted in the case of a severe infestation. Another solution is introducing beneficial insects that will naturally keep the population of mole crickets down. For example, in Florida, the wildflowers known as shrubby false buttonweed and partridge pea will attract the larra wasp, one of the mole cricket's natural predators. The larra wasp does not sting humans and poses no threat to the lawn.
Several kinds of crickets are found in Arizona. Although they pose no immediate health risks (they do not bite or carry disease) they have been known to eat through everything from wallpaper glue to wool to silk.
