flour and grasshoppers

I read that sprinkling white flour on grasshoppers (and plants) early in the morning can be an effective means of control.

Is this true?
Will the flour harm other beneficial insects?

I know the flour needs to be washed off the plant within 48 hours, so as not to hurt the plant.
