What is the best spray for grasshoppers?
I want to spray a Large area with a 15 gallon sprayer to get rid of the million grasshoppers. do not want to harm the yard or flowers. what should i use?
Bifen IT would be a good choice for grasshopper control. You should start applications before the grasshoppers have a chance to hatch for best control. You should thoroughly spray your lawn and water in the application with about a .25 in of water to help the product get past the thatch layer and into the soil where grass hoppers actually develop. If you already have grasshoppers you can use Bifen at the highest usage rate of 1 oz of product per 1 gallon of water for the quickest knockdown. Use sufficient amounts of water to help the product get to the soil layers. Once the Bifen has dried it will be completely safe for pets and children to resume their normal activity in the areas that have been treated. The Bifen is safe to be used on anything non-edible in the yard and will not harm trees, bushes or flowers.
