· Hi Berma,
Through research and trials Neem Oil has been found to repel and control grasshoppers. It is also listed as an IGR...insect growth regulator. Neem Oil is Organic and safe to use in gardens and around the landscape. Neem Oil is a triple action control. It controls insects, fungus/disease, and mites! It is also inexpensive. You should be able to get Neem Concentrate for less than $20.00 a pint. A pint will make 16 gallons.
Read the label well before applying Neem Oil. As with all other insecticides, and control products you want to make sure you use proper application. I'm sure the label will suggest that Neem Oil be applied more than just one time for sufficient control.
We've been selling Neem at our retail nursery for years. By far our best selling control product. And it's organic and safe.
Hope this helps you.
