Farmer across the road from me poisoned his 75 acre field, it seems that all of his crickets , 5 million of them, moved into my millet and milo field, about 12 acres total. Does anyone know if doves eat crickets? They are really working over my grain plants. IF doves are drawn to crickets it will work out just fine. After hunting for all these years I should know the answer, but I dont.

You need to put out NOLO bait early and often to begin controlling them.

I don't know, even seed eating birds will eat easy to catch and abundant insects, so they might. Quail will eat them for sure, if there is any around! Lots of other birds will too.


We are all in this together.

You need to make a deal with your farmer neighbor to treat your 12.


They make ammo specifically for hunting for a reason! nidea
