With over 18,000 different species, grasshoppers come in various shapes, sizes, and colors

Grasshoppers can be found all over the world, with the exception of the extreme cold regions near the north and south poles. These insects inhabit areas where they can find an abundant source of food, which includes leaves, grasses, and cereal crops.

Grasshoppers: A Farmer's Nightmare

Grasshoppers may have defense mechanisms to protect them from their natural enemies, but the effects of their bite on humans can be quite harmful.

When confronted with a potential danger, grasshoppers have the ability to spit a brown liquid known as "tobacco juice" in order to divert the attention of other insects or predators and buy themselves some time to get away. Because they feed on dangerous plants and store the toxins in their bodies, some species of grasshopper can actually become poisonous.
The biggest cause for concern over grasshoppers is the damage they cause to crops.

When populations are at their highest, just six or seven grasshoppers per square yard across 10 acres can consume the same amount of food as one cow.

These insects have a diverse array of favored foods, some of which include alfalfa, rice, cotton, soybeans, clover, lettuce, carrots, onions, corn, beans, and tobacco. On the other hand, they usually steer clear of tomatoes, squash, and peas. Grasshoppers are frequently ranked among the most troublesome pests to deal with for farmers and gardeners.
