The good news is that most crop pest grasshopper species concentrate their egg pods in field borders and non–crop areas that are weedy, uncultivated, and don’t get submerged in water. Scout those areas for hatching grasshoppers from mid- May to the end of June and treat them when necessary. This can prevent damage from adult grasshoppers moving into crop fields and gardens later in the summer. It is better to treat grasshoppers away from the crop field or out of the garden than in them. More economical and selective treatments are available for grasshopper control in non-crop habitats. This targeted control also reduces the impact on beneficial insects such as those that pollinate plants.
Stop by the Washakie County Extension office to pick up a "square foot job aid" to help you count and identify grasshoppers in the field.
