|this year has been terrible with locust and grasshoppers destroying both my vegetable garden and eating my porch plants. Is there a humane way to keep these creatures away from my plants?

|In a vegetable garden, grasshoppers are probably best controlled with rotenone, sabadilla or pyrethrum sprays applied when you first notice the damage. Grasshoppers can also be controlled with biological weapon called Nosema locustae. It should be readily available in your local garden center. Best wishes with your garden!
