How do you get rid of crawfish/crawdads in your yard?

07.23.13
I am in Santa Fe, TX, near the coast, but in more of a rural area. We have lots and lots of Crawdads that burrow holes in our yard and ditches. Does anyone know how to get rid of them or getting them to leave? It makes the yard really hard to walk in because of the holes.

    I can appreciate your desire to do something about this, Pamela, but I'm afraid the only longterm solution is to work to improve the drainage on your property. Most sources specifically recommend against chemical controls because of the threat to water

    Douglas, I did check out the sites you provided, but they didn't offer anything too helpful. We will be building a house on the property soon, so that should help out quite a bit, but I am open to any other helpful advise. Thank you.

    Pamela, I think the bottom line is that you need to do the site work to ensure proper drainage before you build.
