Okay, I need some help from all my readers!! I moved into a new place where the tenants did not bother to tend to or water the backyard area. This has resulted in the yard becoming infested with grasshoppers. When I moved in I brought all my plants and they are now being munched to death!! I am in desperate need of some natural ways to deter or kill these annoying hoppers!! I would prefer to do this organically. Does anyone know any tips or home remedies for controlling grasshoppers?? If so post them here.. Thanks a ton!!

I have found that allowing your cats to all go outside to play with the grasshoppers is a good way to get rid of them. It’s entertaining too, ha!! Seriously though, dry undisturbed areas are usually grasshopper magnets. This includes dead leaves under bushes, dry debris covered flowerbeds and much more. So dig up your soil, rake up the debris and keep things moist, that really helped me. Also, birds are natural predators of grasshoppers so attracting birds into your yard or garden is also a great natural remedy for grasshoppers!
