I've used 2 different types of outdoor plant pest controls and I still have a lot of grasshoppers. I do I get rid of them, or do I apply more Daizon?

Thank you!

There's a biological control called Grasshopper Bait that is more effective than Diazinon. It's a product made from bran and a sweetener lure laced with a predacious protozoa, Nosema locustae. It is non-toxic to animals, people, plants and other insects, but kills most species of grasshoppers by infecting them with a disease. Grasshoppers will spread the disease among themselves, by eating sick hoppers and by laying infected eggs.
