Ways to eliminate grasshoppers
I'm thinking ahead to this summer, and would like ideas to get rid of grasshoppers without using chemicals. We just built our home in the country, and last year the grasshoppers were eating everything; they even stripped our alfalfa field. I want to have a large vegetable and flower garden, but won't be able to if we have grasshoppers like last year. Has anyone had success with ducks or chickens eating enough of them?
