Grasshoppers are very hard to control. Eggs overwinter in the soil and grasshopper nymphs emerge in the spring. The best time to try to control them is during the nymph stage. Some natural predators that eat the nymphs are chickens, guinea hens, larks and bluebirds. NOLO Bait or Semaspore (a microbial pathogen) infect and kill some grasshopper species, if applied early in the season.
