Besides spraying pesticides is there any better way of getting rid of them? I have little baby grasshoppers everywhere. I'd just spray them and hope for the best, but I'm afraid more grasshoppers will move in and take their place. (These grasshoppers are also in the yard and pastures) And I'm not real interested in spraying my entire property for grasshoppers. I've thought about grasshopper bait, but so far have not found a local supplier (I'm in PA) nor have I had much luck finding an online store (I really wanted that Nolo grasshopper bait that keeps reinfesting any new grasshoppers that would venture into the treated area.) I also thought about poultry (guineas possibly) and putting up chicken wire around the garden and letting them patrol the area. The only worry there I have is that the birds would eat my crops and not the insects I want them to eat or they would scratch up all the mulch I have down. The garden is large so it's not like the birds would be cramped, they'd have plenty of room. There's even a spot where a little shelter could be put up for them. Would Guineas or some other breed of poultry like to dine on these pesky grasshoppers? Any other ideas on how to get rid of the grasshoppers?
