Something munching on my leaves

ahajmano(sunset 23, Mission Viejo CA)April 28, 2013

So As I am fighting the earwig front, another front has opened on my trees.

The tanglefoot is keepin the crawlers at bay, but now my trees are getting defoliated by flying insects. I have seen both 1.5" long brown/gray grasshoppers and junebugs in the area. Which one do you think is the culprit? The bites are large and start from the leaf edge inward.

I think grasshopper if June bugs all leaves be eaten in my area they June bugs eat at night all night. Sevin works highest percentage is 60% Dust in my area. It mix with water for a gallon sprayer but un mix if set to long at pump up time pick jug give some rock & roll be okay until next pump up spray all plant around with spray both bugs.

Any organic control? I have already sucommed to fertilizer due to severe nutrient deficiencies, For health reasons, I am staying away from pesticides.
