We have grasshoppers worse than I have ever seen them this year. They have destroyed our fruitrees and mos tof the other shade trees as well. Now that there are no more leaves on the trees they are stripping the bark from the branches. My chickens absolutely love to eat the grasshoppers but there are simply too many hoppers for my chickens to even make a dent in the population. I read about the NoLo bait http://www.biconet.com/biocontrol/nolo.html but am a little worried about the bacteria that might get into the chickens. Here is a thread on gardenweb that talks about it and guineas as well to control grasshoppers. I think I will try both next year and hopefully my trees will survive. http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/okgard/msg0522004719769.html Any suggestions on this matter are welcome.
