Bermudagrass (Cynodon sp.) and paspalum (Paspalum vaginatum) genotypes were evaluated in laboratory, greenhouse, and field experiments for potential resistance to the common turfgrass pests, tawny mole cricket (Scapteriscus vicinus Scudder) and southern mole cricket (Scapteriscus borellii Giglio-tos). Potential resistance among 21 seashore paspalums to both insects in an environmental chamber at 27 °C, 85% relative humidity, and 15 hours light/9 hours dark) revealed that Glenn Oaks `Adalayd' was least tolerant of cricket injury, while 561-79, HI-1, and `Excalibur' were most tolerant. Nymphal survival was not influenced by turfgrass type. Plant selections that maintained the highest percentage of their normal growth after 4 weeks of feeding by tawny mole crickets over three separate greenhouse trials were 561-79, HI-1, HI-2, PI-509018, `Excalibur', SIPV-1 paspalums, and `Tifeagle' and `Tifsport' bermudagrasses. Although none of the tested genotypes was highly resistant to tawny mole cricket injury, `TifSport' bermudagrass and 561-79 (Argentine) seashore paspalum were most tolerant.
