Grasshoppers

— by Dr. Jeff Whitworth and Dr. Holly Davis

 

Grasshoppers

Grasshoppers continue to feed and thus get larger.  As they feed and develop, they often move out of the grassy areas where they hatched and start feeding on a nearby crop.  Thus, the best time to control grasshoppers is before these nymphs move into crops, or at least while they are still just feeding on the crop borders.  Grasshopper baits work, but often do not compete well with green, succulent, growing crops.
