Grasshoppers are arriving and in some areas of Texas are already swarming. If you need to treat your lawn and garden for grasshoppers, please consider control with less chemically toxic products. Here are two and a link to the planetnatural.com blog:
Semaspore Bait (the Nosema locustae protozoa attached to wheat bran)
EcoBran (wheat bran carrying 2% carbaryl)
Modern baits provide lasting protection from grasshoppers one which:
* Kills grasshoppers at their source — the hatching beds — where they are concentrated, before they can migrate to your crop.
* Persists throughout the hatching and growing season and at least through the following year.
* Provides quick-kill of any survivors from the hatching beds or migrants from other areas which might threaten your crop.
Why Semaspore and EcoBran
They are the cost-effective way to eliminate grasshoppers, because:
* They work: both are approved by USDA-APHIS for grasshopper control. Baits based on Nosema locustae were originally developed by the USDA. Semaspore and EcoBran have been tested extensively by US and other government agencies, and by universities in many countries.
