Those blasted grasshoppers! There are more of them this year than there was last year but so far, it’s mostly the smaller versions and not so many that are as big as Speck.
They are destroying everything. They have finished off the onions . . chomped them down to the ground. Same with the garlic tops. Lucky for me, they’re after Vince’s fruit trees and vines too he’s declared war on them. Tonight we sprayed everything with a Listerine mixture. Of course, it isn’t going to kill them but supposedly they don’t like the taste of Listerine. I’m kinda thinking . . who does? But, we’ll try anything.
I just received confirmation that our Red Thyme Essential Oil has been shipped. I guess that’s another remedy he’s trying.
Who ever thought there would be so many grasshoppers in any one place?
