Mole crickets are clumsy in flight, and will not necessarily land in a flight trap: a large proportion of them may land around it. The number of mole crickets caught in pitfall traps and flight traps depends not only upon the number of mole crickets in the vicinity of the traps, but also on their activity level. Activity levels depend upon physiological status, which is influenced by age, time of year, time of day, temperature, moisture, nutritional status, and other factors. The catches in these traps do not relate to any specific unit area, so they cannot be used to estimate the number of mole crickets per acre — they are used to collect mole crickets for experimental purposes. They were not designed as methods of controlling mole crickets, and there is no evidence that they reduce mole cricket populations even when operated constantly for years.
The number of mole crickets caught in flight traps, using song as the attractant and operated constantly, has varied from year to year at trapping stations near Gainesville and at Bradenton. These trapping stations have been operated for more than 16 years at each location. Variation in numbers of mole crickets trapped from year to year bears no obvious relationship to total annual rainfall or to minimum winter temperatures. Only since establishment of biological control agents near these stations has the number of mole crickets trapped shown a decline. Mole crickets (Scapteriscus sp.) hide by day and emerge at night to feed on foliage, stems, and roots of vegetables, flowers, and turf grass. These annoying pests also tunnel beneath the surface of the soil disrupting the roots of plants and leaving behind mounds of soil. Getting rid of them without using commercial pesticides can be a challenge, but there are several natural remedies generally effective against mole crickets.
Like other insects, mole crickets are sluggish in the morning, making it an ideal time to catch them by hand. Some prefer to use a butterfly net to do the job -- but either way, manually removing them from the garden or lawn works well if the infestation is small. Dropping the crickets into a jar of soapy water to drown and disposing of them away from the garden may be all you need to keep these critters under control. Making your own insect traps from yellow sticky paper and placing them near areas where mole crickets frequent, works to capture them as well as a variety of other insects. Floating squares of yellow plastic in a pool or hanging them above a bucket of water works to bait mole crickets. When they stop to investigate, they fall into the water and drown. Fill a small container with nine parts water to one part molasses and cover the top with canola oil. Sink the container into the soil so that the rim of the container rests at soil level. Mole crickets that approach to investigate under the cover of darkness fall into the mixture and drown. The larra wasp lays its eggs on the mole cricket where the larvae feed off the mole cricket's blood. When the wasp matures, it kills and eats its host -- the mole cricket. Planting button weed (Spermacoce verticillata) and partridge peas (Chamaecrista fasciculata) in your yard attracts these wasps. According to the University of Florida Extension, larra wasps do not sting humans unless they are handled, but may significantly lower the number of mole crickets in your area.

While there is not much information available on the origins of Butter OG, it is generally thought to be an indica-dominant strain as it gives consumers a very relaxing, giggly high that gradually fades to sleepiness. Its dense, sparkly buds give off a fruity scent with slight undertones of ammonia. The smoke is very light and smooth, with sweet flavors on the inhale and, like its name suggests, a buttery aftertaste.
