Migratory grasshopper


Differential grasshopper


Limited defoliation is caused by one or more species in most fields. Rarely is damage severe enough to justify field-wide controls.

Grasshopper populations should not be permitted to exceed eight per square yard.

Please refer to the most recent Sunflower Insect Management Guide for current management options.
