Picture the biggest frowny-face you can possibly imagine. That would be what I look like right now.
I don't know if you can tell from these pictures or not; but THEY'RE BAaaaaCK!
The grasshoppers! We're having such a time with them.
I'm at my wits end.
You may remember a few years ago...we had a plague of grasshoppers.
you can read all about it here. "Let my people go"
This is part 2--
I'm at a loss as to what to do for this!
I think we're going to have to cover like we did before...with the Tull.
Those little brown specs all over the branches in my Wisteria bush are grasshoppers.
If they're not eating the Wisteria...they munch on the Pecan Trees...the new fruit trees we planted I'm afraid will wither and die. They will not be able to withstand the onslaught of these horrific soldiers... as they trample down my garden. Stomping on and munching away at all our hard work.
I have no idea what will work. It's like they have on body armor and are impervious to all our weapons.
It is quite discouraging.
I have to fight back the anger...when I want to say "I QUIT!!!"
In the past we tried D.E. (diatomaceous earth), lemon soap and finally ended up covering with the netting. Eventually they ate through the netting!
This year so far, we've tried flour and Dawn dish soap...though not at the same time. I wish they'd just fly away!!!
I am open to anything... except insecticides. We're trying to grow our food without all those chemicals and poisons.
I'm asking if you've tried something and it was a success in getting rid of grasshoppers... please share it with me in my comments!
I'd love to hear about it.
You can all leave a link there if you have something for me to read about it.
Thanks so much.
