Will Bifenthrin kill grasshoppers? The big orange & black ones that get about 3 inches long?

They hatch out in March or April & are about 1/2 in long to start with, but grow to about 3 inches long & will destroy any leafy flower or bush. The hatch out by the 100's.

Answer:

Bifenthrin products would be a good choice for grasshopper control. You should start applications before the grasshoppers have a chance to hatch. You should thoroughly spray your lawn and water in the application with about a .25 in of water to help the bifenthrin get past the thatch layer and into the soil where grass hoppers actually develop. If you already have grasshoppers you can use Talstar P or Bifen IT at the highest usage rate of 1 oz of product per 1 gallon of water for the quickest knockdown.
