    Default Grasshoppers

    We have hoards of small grasshoppers 1/4" to 3/4" long, the ground in alive with them, they will take out our garder if I don't do something, any suggestions that will not hurt the bee's?

    As long as you aren't treating something attractive to bees the chances of harm to the bees is pretty minimal. Garden centers will have plenty of good options. Grasshoppers are much easier to kill when they are young. You can minimize chemical usage by concentrating primarily on "bait" areas where they are the thickest as they tend to be attracted to the lushest vegetation.
