Crawfish chimneys in the yard
How do I get rid of these in my yard? Mowing 'em down only dulls my mower blades.

kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
- place trap in front yard
- bait with gizzard shad or pogies
- make an etoufee' with caught crawfish
- Offer your service "free of charge " to neighbors
- profit from free crawfish year round

re: Crawfish chimneys in the yard
How many burrows you talking about? No pesticide labeled for this purpose, but should you have to treat your lawn for insect issues and some of it finds it’s way into crawfish burrows, good bye crawfish.

You can put a tablespoon of lye drain cleaner, chased with some water, in each burrow and that should take care of them. Wear gloves, long sleeve shirt and pants, and eye protection. High pH burns the gills of crawfish killing them. Lye breaks down to natural chemicals already present in the soil LINK

pour an ounce or two of gasoline and the problem is 100% solved

once or twice a year i need to do this if we get a lot of rain and then come into my yard, but gas fumes kills them by sucking out all the oxygen

DO NOT LIGHT THE GAS if you do it burns the fumes off which you need to kill them

If you pour flour, butter, onions, garlic, bell pepper, and Tony’s down the hole a crawfish etouffee can be dug out.
