My garden is currently being overrun by grasshoppers. I'd like an organic way to get rid of them. Has anybody found anything that works?

I had this problem earlier in the season and read that the biggest preditor of grasshoppers are birds. We are in the midsts of a drought here and I had no trouble attracting birds buy setting up a make shift bird bath. Grasshoppers are gone and not even the Cardinals touched one tomato or any other plant for that matter. I guess they like the hoppers with a water chaser better.

Insect-eating birds would be a great help. Also get a toad. Very Happy

Neem Oil ran them out of mine last year, and I can see it's time for another round of it.

The birds sit on top of my critter cages probably watching snacks they cannot reach Shocked Grasshoppers are nasty to squish with a stick but I suppose it's about the same as a quick death by bird beak....and I'm about as queasy writing about it too, yech.
