Hi all,
I seem to be having a bad problem with grasshoppers eating my plants. Does anyone know an effective pesticide to stop them?
Cheers

Pyrethum spray will kill all plant sucking/eating bugs, but be careful, dont use if they very small. And even if they big, spray em when its cool in the evening so ya dont fry em.
Look for a spray that has 0-1 day withholding period and thats as good as it gets.
There is also a product called Dipel (Bacillus Thurgenisis- think thats right spelking) that will kill Grasshoppers, was made just for that.
Peace. Nibbler

And so, life returned to normal, or at least as normal as it gets in this primitive dirtball inhabited by psychotic apes. Thanks to the effects of the Hash waves, the people of Earth have not memory of what had transpired, except Nibbler, and no one believed him or cared what he had to say. I, meanwhile, returned to my post, ever vigilant, lest Earth again come under Hash attack. And when that day comes, God help us. God help us all.

Nah Bt is for moths, butterflies and caterpillars (soft bodied insects).

Nosema locustae is a biological control for grasshoppers, but it isn't available in Australia. Permethrin (synthetic pyrethrum) is effective on younger hoppers, less effective as they get older because their shells harden.

Another thing to try is set a trap or traps. Take a wide mouthed jam, or other glass jar, bury it up to the lip in the soil close to the affected plant (don't let the jar fill in with soil). Fill the jar to within 3cm of the lip with warm water, add a dollop of molasses and stir gently... top up to within 1cm of the lip of the jar.

The molasses will attract the hoppers which then drown in the jar of water. Traps need regular checking, cleaning out and topping up.

Depending on numbers of plants to be protected and density of hoppers, you may need a series of jars.

Sorry Mate, Loiuse is right about the Dipel, sorry, got me products mixed up. lol . Dipel targets Catapillar and Moth larvae only.... Sorry about that, my bad. Peace. Nibbler

Cheers Nibbler, Louise & Thunder. Some very interesting solutions. Reckon I might try the traps and the spray. Organic is probably best after all!

I am trying home made chilli spray as a repellent.

 

 I try not to kill things, any things, so hope it works. Have a few grasshoppers at the moment, see them sitting on one plant in particular and seeing signs of being munched on.

not too bad, but thought id try.

see how ya go adding silica & aloe vera to that spray 

will help to increase plant health , also has saponins in aloe 

which can work as a pest spray on there own 

 

build health & your building the plants own immune system 

to fight bugs on there own 

 

like anything you try for the first time , spray a test plant B4 the important plants 

tomato , rose , some plants will react differently so testing testing testing 1 2 3

 

ps aloe with kelp might make your sweet potato root a little faster , i've never tried it 

     but both have natural rooting hormones
