Anyone have a way to avoid total devastation from what seems like a grasshopper plague I have going on? The unusually moist spring and now summer seem to have exploded the population of hoppers beyond what we usually get this time of year. I've considered spraying but the rain every other day will probably wash some off but maybe I'll kill the ones who do munch while it's still on there. I usually let nature and it's natural predators take care of things like with the aphids and the ladybugs but nothing seems to be controlling the gazillion grasshoppers around my garden. Any ideas? I've read Sevin bait will do them in. I could spray but a lot of my peppers are fruiting so I hate to. In most years the population seems to spike then they die off and all is good. I don't see terrible damage yet but they are thick in the peppers. They seem to be eating grasses and other things in and around the garden/yard. I'm afraid what will happen is one day all is well and then BAM! Naked plants.
