There is a grasshopper pathogen called "Nosema locastae" that's a biological control for grasshoppers and it also works on crickets. Nosema locastae is a single celled protozoan that infects grasshoppers and crickets, providing a natural means of control. It is specific to grasshoppers and crickets and doesn't harm animals or humans.
