Mole-Cricket, or Gryllus gryllo-talpa, L. a destructive insect, in the vicinity of rivers, infesting moist meadows, and gardens, in which it does great injury to the plants and roots ; destroying whole beds of cabbages, flowers, etc. It is produced from an egg, and furnished with wings similar to those of the common cricket, together with a pair of fore-feet resembling those of a mole, and with which it works its way beneath the soil, raising up ridges in its subterraneous progress, an defacing the beauty of garden-walks.—No method has hitherto been discovered of preventing the depredations of these pernicious vermin. But, as the generality of crickets are particularly averse to the fetid exhalations of hogs'-dung, it is highly probable that the mole-cricket may be expelled, though not extirpated, by spreading this kind of manure upon infested lands.
